Years with Loyola: Almost 2 years
Alma Mater: Hampton University & Old Dominion University
Originally from East Chicago, Indiana, I spent time at the illustrious Hampton University obtaining a Bachelor’s degree in Business Management. After graduation, I spent time working in staffing, human resources, and for the Social Security Administration. I found my own path at Old Dominion University and worked toward my degree in Higher Education administration. I began my professional student affairs career as a Jayhawk at the University of Kansas in Fraternity & Sorority Life, and after leaving the Sunflower State I headed to Tennessee where I worked for Tennessee State and Middle Tennessee State University. Most recently, I returned to the Chicagoland area to be near family.
I try to lend students a hand by serving as a sounding board, connecting them to resources, and by helping them to navigate the world of academia.
SAGA strives to help students tell their story. We strive to help students engage outside the classroom but to connect those experiences to the learning happening in the classroom. We are here to help students navigate and create their journey here at Loyola.
Maroon is my favorite color! I also appreciate the deeply rooted Jesuit values.
By treating them as individuals and connecting with them and their stories on a personal level. This allows me to serve as the best resource that I can be!
To me, it means the ability to provide equitable opportunities. The ability to challenge injustice and value diversity and multiple perspectives.
I would say that the foundation in which our Jesuit values are built have always been a part of my personal and professional identity. Working at a Jesuit institution compliments my existing values and gives me peace of mind to know that I will be supported and encouraged to uphold those values, to lead ethically, and to empower students to be ethical in their own endeavors.
The Damen Student Center is my favorite building because it is always buzzing with students. It is where I have the best chance of seeing a diverse group of students.
I got offered my job here 1 day after my birthday! I remember being concerned that I would get turned down on my birthday, but instead I got better news the next day!
Imagine the possibilities!
