Office Manager - Academic Enrichment Center
Professional/personal biography: After receiving my BA from Benedictine University, I spent almost 3 years doing advertising research at NSA Media. After that, I totally switched gears and spent almost 2 years working in litigation with Kirkland & Ellis LLP. I just recently joined DU and the Academic Enrichment Center team. I’m a Trinity High School alum and it is good to be back in the neighborhood!
Most memorable college experience: I spent a summer abroad in Spain and it was definitely one of the best experiences of my life. It was my first trip out of the country and I learned so much about myself as well as made some lasting friendships and connections.
What I like most about DU: The small school setting. Everyone here is so welcoming and helpful. You never feel as though you don’t belong and most people make it a point to remember your name.
Favorite activity to do in Chicago: Shop. Chicago has an excellent selection of stores for good shopping!
Best advice to give to someone entering college: EXPLORE! Although it is good to have a general plan, it is a good idea to try new things. Get involved in different activities, step outside of your ordinary boxes and meet new people! This is one of those few times in life where you have the opportunity to go in several different directions at once and you never know where they may take you or what you may learn.
