About the Counselor

What is your favorite part of the SXU campus?

Starbucks! I consider myself a V.I.P at Starbucks because I am a Gold Card Member!

Why do you like your job?

I don't like my job...I LOVE my job because I love to interact with students and families and helping them choose their educational and career path to success! I relate to students and give them tips and advice from my personal undergraduate experience. It puts a smile on my face when a student is filled with joy once I make that congratulations phone call to them.

Last concert attended?

Beyoncé and Jay-Z: On the Run II Tour! (I am an official BeyHive Member!!)

Favorite television show?

Any "Real Housewives" series; (Atlanta and New Jersey are my favorite!), I also love "Sister,Sister", "Martin" and, any TV show from the 90's!

What is your favorite season in Chicago? Why?

I would say the spring/summer. There are so many events, festivals and activities to choose from! The weather is always great during that time.
