What is your favorite thing about working at Loyola? 
Meeting and learning from all the student-athletes we see every year.

What is your most memorable achievement as a Loyola employee?
Watching all of the student-athletes come together to support the men's volleyball team win the National Championship on our home court in 2014 and then watching them repeat it in 2015. I have been very blessed to work with such wonderful athletes!

What does Loyola's mission mean to you?
Loyola is about transformative experiences. Working with our student-athletes in the weight room over the last six years, I have been able to be a part of their physical transformation but more importantly, see these student-athletes develop strength and resiliency beyond the physical aspects of training.   

What motivates you to succeed each and every day?
Knowing that for some students you are the constant in a life that can otherwise be chaotic and overwhelming for them. Being the rock and support they need as they learn and grow in a safe environment, seeing them become the amazing individuals they are destined to be, is always more than enough motivation to be the best I can be for them every day.  

Tell us how you show your Rambler pride. 
Working in Athletics, there are always games and events to attend and show Rambler pride!

Tell us something most people at Loyola would be surprised to know about you.
