What is your favorite thing about working at Loyola?
Having so many opportunities to interact with great colleagues and talented students across all of our campuses. And, being mistaken for an undergrad on occasion!

What is your most memorable achievement as a Loyola employee?
Helping build the University's community relationships and meeting the students’ requests by implementing the off-campus Rambler Bucks program. Through this program, students and employees can use Rambler Bucks at 10 neighborhood restaurants (at both LSC and WTC).

What does Loyola's mission mean to you?
It means creating a safe and encouraging environment. It means enabling students to learn, and giving all members of the community a better understanding of how we can serve others in all we do.

What motivates you to succeed each and every day?
Having such diversity in my different tasks, and being able to see so many of my work contributions come to life around campus.

Tell us how you show your Rambler pride.
I bleed maroon and gold. My office especially shows it, from the authentic 1963 Champions felt calendar to all of the bobbleheads—especially Sr. Jean!

Tell us something most people at Loyola would be surprised to know about you.
My grandfather was commissioned by Fr. Mertz to paint the fresco mural of the Jesuits in Madonna della Strada in the 1940s—and my dad modeled as the little boy being sheltered by St. Peter Claver, S.J. (on the lower right).
