Blane has served on staff at AU Chi Alpha for several years and became the Director in the Fall of 2014.

You'll find him biking around DC in search of a coffee by day and pouring over a book by night.

A Buffalo native, Natalie is best known for her unique vocals and indie style. After graduating from American University with a degree in Anthropology, Natalie completed the DC Chi Alpha CMIT Program. After that, she joined the Chi Alpha staff bringing with her a heart for missions and worship.
