Fun Fact

I am a third-generation Illini! I've worked in many areas of higher education- admissions, dual credit, volunteer programs, financial aid - and am excited to be with The Career Center. I am also a big advocate for the local arts scene and am particularly involved in local community theatre.

What do you like best about your job?

I enjoy hearing our students' stories and working with them to seize and direct those stories toward success by equipping them with the resources our office and our university have to offer. I also enjoy participating in outreach for the Career Center and helping build awareness of the many ways our office can support and empower our students.
