Why I work in DU admission: 

Dominican University provides students with countless opportunities for academic, professional and personal growth. As a graduate student intern in Academic Advising at Dominican, prior to my current role in Admission, I saw first hand the level of support students receive from faculty, staff and their peers. Attending a small liberal arts college helped me find and develop my passion of serving students as they navigate the college process. Working at Dominican allows me to assist students not only with the admission and college search process, but also in discovering the amazing possibilities that await them at DU and beyond.

Favorite Foods: 
I love Chinese food, especially from Luo Peking's in Oak Park, and cake batter frozen yogurt from Forever Yogurt in Chicago.
Reading, rollerblading by the lake and forest preserve trails, baking and scrapbooking
On a day off I enjoy: 

Spending time with my family and friends, watching the Food Network, and going on adventures in the great city of Chicago.
