"Kim and I became acquainted in Fall 2009, when I pledged Pi Kappa Phi Fraternity at Arizona State University. When we were introduced, my new member educator stated, “this woman will change your life,” and ever since that day, the relationship that I have built with Kimberly Novak certainly has changed my life. But I also admit that my story is no different than a lot of other fraternity men and sorority women. While I am blessed to say that Kim Novak served as my Chapter Advisor of the Pi Kappa Phi Chapter at Arizona State University, I know that Kim’s dedication to Greek Life transcend nationally as she consults with universities, national organizations, and chapters from coast to coast through her work in hazing prevention and risk management. Through this work, Kim has influenced countless lives in achieving excellence, striving for betterment, and living the mutual values and ideals of Greek organizations."
