I am excited to be a part of a forward-thinking, innovative, and collaborative team of faculty and staff who are dedicated to addressing health equity in our local community and world. When not at work, I enjoy traveling with family and friends, brunch, art, and watching rerun comedy sitcoms.

    What's it like to teach at Parkinson?

    The Parkinson School gives staff the opportunity to implement their own ideas and passions. We are a collaborative community of life-long learners and passionate leaders. I enjoy working with my colleagues and I value the academic areas of study that we teach. It is exciting to be a part of a new(er) School that is innovative and sets ideas into motion. 

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

    I feel grateful to be working in a collaborative environment with a dedicated team that prioritizes health equity on many levels. My work feels meaningful, and I value the opportunity to contribute to our School’s growth. I have the opportunity to impact students’ educational experiences and paths. My work also challenges me and inspires me to continue learning. 

    What called you to or attracted you to Loyola?

    As a graduate of St. Ignatius College Prep here in Chicago, I believe in the principle of being a man or woman for others. Loyola University also holds onto that value and it's an honor to work at an institution that holds firm to those beliefs.
