Educational Trust Staff

Contact the staff of the Educational Trust who work day-in and day-out to support the mission of Building Better Men.

Laura Landry

Executive Director


From working straight out of college in Major League Baseball to serving as Executive Director of the Educational Trust, Laura brings with her a wealth of experience and knowledge. Throughout the past fifteen years, she has fine tuned her skills in sales, marketing, public relations, event planning, and fundraising while working for the Phi Sigma Sigma Foundation, OmegaFi, and ultimately, Chi Phi. However, her love of baseball has never left as her mission is to watch (preferably a Red Sox) game at every major league stadium in. When not out on the road meeting with Chi Phi Brothers, Laura enjoys spending time at the beach, reading, and learning to play golf. Just know that when you meet Laura, she will always spend a few minutes talking about the love of her life: her dogs Murphy & Oscar.

Erin Andersen

Director of Marketing & Programs


As a proud educator for almost twenty years, Erin comes to the Trust with extensive knowledge in communications and programming. Her experience in designing curricula for various high school and college courses in multiple institutions throughout Georgia proved beneficial upon entry into working with Greek Life. Prior to joining the Educational Trust, Erin was a member of the Fraternity Staff assisting with risk management, educational programming, and alumni development. She now brings these collective skills and experiences to the Trust in hopes of inspiring people to give back. Erin spends most of her free time with her husband Adam doting on their two amazing girls, Evelyn and Olivia, and fur-baby Hershey. When she gets a moment of peace she will likely be found curled up with a good book, generally something by Jane Austen, or jotting down ideas for a children’s book she hopes to publish one day.

Rachel Mason

Director of Stewardship & Engagment


Rachel found her passion for fundraising as a student at East Carolina University where she served as the student assistant then assistant to the Director of Annual Giving. Since then, she has served as a Director of Development and Major Gift Officer for organizations such as the American Cancer Society, the Southeastern Guide Dogs, and the College of Charleston. Her passion for helping others is evident in her volunteer work with the Charleston’s Junior Woman’s Club as well as formerly serving as a foster mom for the local Humane Society. A wine connoisseur, spin instructor, Poe fanatic, and teacup collector, Rachel can mostly be found spending time with her two dogs, Jonathan Wick and Jules Lenore.
