Why I work in DU admission: 

I came to Dominican University as an out-of-state student looking for a place to grow academically and professionally. Having the opportunity to work in the admission office as an undergraduate helped foster my passion for student development, particularly for those students that are low-income and first-generation. I believe in the mission of the university and have experienced from a student and staff perspective the impact a Dominican University education can have on people and I hope to convey that to prospective students.

Favorite Foods: 

I love sushi from Indie Café on the north side of Chicago and Mexican from Maya Del Sol in Oak Park. 


In my free time I like to try new restaurants, explore Chicago, read and relax.

On a day off I enjoy: 

Catching up with my family and friends, going out to brunch and watching Netflix sounds like the perfect day off to me!
