Professor Russell spent more than two decades working in Retail Management and found a passion for Human Resources and continuous learning within the professional roles she held in that industry. Professor Russell found Loyola to be a perfect fit for her to continue her education, and after receiving her MSHR degree from Quinlan Business School, subsequently embarked on a career in Human Resources, with Loyola. In her current role, Professor Russell supports multiple business groups across the University. Through both her role as an Adjunct Professor and in her HR position, she strives to give people the same support, engagement, and learning experience she has experienced both as a graduate student and now as a staff and faculty member.
