What is your favorite thing about working at Loyola?
Our students, staff, and faculty make every day interesting, educational, and entertaining, but what a beautiful Lake Shore Campus, too!

What is your most memorable achievement as a Loyola employee?
It is an honor each day to lead an absolutely amazing group of dedicated First- and Second-Year Advisors.

What does Loyola's mission mean to you?
Service: Always seeking the “magis” in self and others.

What motivates you to succeed each and every day?
Each day is a struggle and a gift to understand and to try to make the most of the present.

Tell us how you show your Rambler pride.
Through work. For example, I am currently working with Betsi Burns in Athletics to figure out a way to get more first- and second-year students to attend and appreciate the work of our wonderful Loyola athletes and coaches.

Tell us something most people at Loyola would be surprised to know about you.
I have never seen a car as essential or as the expression of my freedom. I have never owned a car or pumped gas, yet I have lived and worked in nine countries and traveled to 18. (I go through a lot of shoes!)
