What is your favorite thing about working at Loyola?
I love the variety that comes with my work. I enjoy being around the students, faculty, and staff. I also get to work on a beautiful lakefront campus with an awesome group of people who genuinely care. 

What is your most memorable achievement as a Loyola employee?
Being nominated for this award! It is so rewarding to know that I have been able to accomplish and to be appreciated in a job I do enjoy.

What does Loyola's mission mean to you?
To help the students make their life a little easier by helping them when they come to the chemistry office. Each day I show kindness and use my skills to help in a meaningful way.

What motivates you to succeed each and every day?
I am motivated by family. I also feel lucky to work at such a great job. 

Tell us how you show your Rambler pride.
I try and help everyone who stops by the office. I feel when anyone stops by the chemistry office that we are their first impression of the University. I want them to feel they have been helped whether it is with professors, they need directions, or just need to talk to someone. Also I tell everyone what a wonderful place it is to work.

Tell us something most people at Loyola would be surprised to know about you.
My husband and I have a garden in the yard, so every year I use many of the vegetables to make my mom’s sweet relish.
