What is your favorite thing about working at Loyola?
My favorite thing about Loyola is the campus community and the institutional mission. I am a proud alumna of the university and I am incredibly grateful for the meaningful connections I have made (and continue to make) here at Loyola..

What is your most memorable achievement as a Loyola employee?
Building new and unique Commuter Student Life programs with the Commuter Ambassador team. We have expanded our commuter initiatives and programs on campus, and I am thrilled to continue to grow with this team.

What does Loyola's mission mean to you?
Loyola’s commitment to social responsibility and justice are foundational in my professional and personal life. Professionally, the mission of the university is my compass in curating person-centered programs for commuter students at Loyola. Personally, I lean on the philosophy of Magis as I continuously strive to do more for others, while I also grow in my identity as a student in life.

What motivates you to succeed each and every day?
It is a combination of finding my passion in student development work, experiencing abundant joy in being part of the Student Activities and Greek Affairs team, and cultivating fierce gratitude for the amazing students I have the opportunity to work with on a daily basis.

Tell us how you show your Rambler pride.
My office is sprinkled with Loyola treasures that I have accumulated along the years, and I proudly wear my maroon and gold inside and outside of the office.

Tell us something most people at Loyola would be surprised to know about you.
My experience as a Loyola undergraduate student inspired me to join the Peace Corps. I worked in Lesotho doing Youth Empowerment initiatives before returning to Loyola as a graduate student. I am forever a Rambler.
