Welcome Heather!

The Graduate School is pleased to welcome Heather Sevener as our new Assistant Dean for Student Services.

Heather is an alumna of Loyola (B.S. in Biology ‘00), who went on to do graduate work in plant biology at Washington University in Saint Louis. Following the reception of her Master’s degree, she worked in Career Advising and Planning Services at The University of Chicago providing career advising and professional development support for graduate students and postdoctoral researchers. Since 2011, she has held the position of Assistant Director of Academic Advising in the Health Sciences at DePaul University, where she also did some adjunct teaching. Heather is an avid Doctor Who fan, reader of British literature (one of her children is named after Iris Murdoch), and gardener. You can always feel free to reach out to her via email at hsevene@luc.edu, and she’s looking forward to getting to know Loyola’s grad students in the coming months.
