Years at Loyola:

What is your favorite thing about working at Loyola? 
Working with the students and helping them progress toward degree completion.

What is your most memorable achievement as a Loyola employee? 
I was part of a team that helped the Loyola University New Orleans students register and attend classes in August 2005 after Hurricane Katrina. We all worked diligently to allow the students that were displaced by the hurricane to continue their collegiate experience.

What does Loyola's mission mean to you?
As a staff member, I try to exemplify the mission in my work each day by being a person for others as I work with students faculty and staff across the University.

What motivates you to succeed each and every day? 
I strive to personally provide the best customer service to students faculty and staff, as exemplified by our maroon and gold standards.  I want to set the best example possible for all stake holders.

Tell us how you show your Rambler pride. 
I am proud to be a double Loyola University Chicago alum and tell others about our wonderful university any chance I have.

Tell us something most people at Loyola would be surprised to know about you. 
For the last two seasons, I have attended most of the men’s volleyball games at home in the Gentile Arena, as my son is one of the regular ball boys for the team.
