Part-Time Instructor, Public Health Sciences

Lake Shore Campus

Use in place of missing faculty or staff headshots

I work as the Manager of Surgical Support Services at Northwest Community Hospital where I manage all ancillary teams including transport, surgical scheduling, billing, front desk and the control desk of our 28 suite operating room. I also am the CEO and founder of G.O.A.L Growth Oriented Activist for Learning, which provides public health related education for children of color throughout the Chicagoland area. As an alum, it gives me great pleasure to pass on what I have learned to fellow and hopefully future Ramblers. In my spare time, I dabble in cooking, martial arts, and arts and crafts specifically puppetry.

What's it like to teach at Parkinson?

To teach here at Loyola is very exciting. As an adjunct and graduate of the MPH program, this school provides me with the opportunity to share what I know and what I have learned. It gives me the opportunity to give the students a raw and very fresh perspective on public health learning. The mentoring that I have received has been extraordinary and instructional.

What would you tell a student about why your field is exciting or important?

My favorite part about the Parkinson School is the students, hands down! The enthusiasm and energy that my students bring weekly is truly encouraging. Because of them, I am inspired everyday and I appreciate them accepting me as their instructor. These students are helping me to fulfill a lifelong dream to teach and for that I am truly thankful.
