My favorite thing about working at Northwestern
Our students are so inspiring. I hear the personal stories about how they came to pursue their educational and professional goals at Northwestern - and have the unique opportunity to get to know them and watch them succeed as clinical interns firsthand. It is incredibly rewarding.
Having a direct connection to students and having the opportunity to support them in pursuit of their dreams and goals makes all of my work incredibly gratifying. On top of that, our admissions team is an amazing, positive, hard-working, dedicated group that I have a blast working with. I also enjoy the challenge of continual development and improvement that working in the Office of Admissions offers. I am lucky enough to be able to honestly say, “I love my job!”
Before working at Northwestern
I come to admissions with a wealth of experience at three previous institutions of higher education, including serving as Assistant Registrar and Academic Program Coordinator. Having earned a B.F.A. in studio art from the University of Minnesota Duluth prior to entering the work force, these positions afforded opportunities for me to further hone my creative problem-solving skills as well as fine tune the valuable aspects of the “Type A” side of my personality.
My life outside Northwestern
I love to travel, soak up family time, disregard exact measurements in cooking, and eat good dark chocolate.
