Favorite Chicago Activities/ Places:

My favorite place in Chicago is Navy Pier.  I love all of the activities offered at Navy Pier, and watching the activity on lake Michigan is also very interesting!

Favorite Chicago Restaurants:

Wow!! I have so many, but my all-time favorites include Frontera Grill, and the Maple Tree Inn (slightly South of Chicago in Blue Island).


Born and raised in Chicago!

Tell us a little about your personal/professional background?

I have extensive experience in business management and changed careers to higher education 8 years ago.  During my recent 8 years I have taught, advised and worked as a career specialist in higher education.

How did you end up working at UIC?

Once I moved into higher education I set a goal to transition into a larger university that has a very active campus, and now I am here!

What are you most excited to do in your new role?

I am most excited to grow the BBA program.  I hope to make many connections with students enrolled in our online program, and attract many new students.

What critical information should students know about?

I have been where you are today.  I have an M.B.A. from a brick and mortar school, and an M.H.S.E. from an online school.  I earned both of these degrees while working full time and having a family.  I am here to support you!
