Years at Loyola: 

What is your favorite thing about working at Loyola?
I truly enjoy the work that I do, but it’s the people that I work with that make every day great!

What is your most memorable achievement as a Loyola employee?
My most memorable achievement is making it to Commencement and the end of the year celebrations. It’s a busy time with all of the planning and coordinating that’s involved, but we have a great team working together, and it is so rewarding when we get to celebrate everyone’s accomplishments! Receiving this award is great too and was a wonderful surprise!

What does Loyola's mission mean to you?
To be a person for others, striving to make a difference, and paying it forward. I’m continuously reflecting on my part in social responsibility and how I can better myself and exemplify the Jesuit ideals. I believe that Loyola provides me with the perfect platform to do so.

What motivates you to succeed each and every day?
I always want to give my best effort in anything that I do and knowing that what I do can hopefully make a difference, whether big or small, is very motivating. I also have wonderful family, friends, and colleagues who support and motivate me every day.

Tell us how you show your Rambler pride. 
I was excited when Loyola joined the Missouri Valley Conference. There are Indiana State alumni in my circle of friends, so it’s fun to cheer Loyola on!

Tell us something most people at Loyola would be surprised to know about you. 
I’m a bit of a music junkie and love to catch shows as often as I can. I have an exciting summer lined up with about one or two shows a week.
