  • What are some moments/accomplishments/projects you have been proud of? 
    • I am incredibly proud of the work I've done as the Founding Director of Student Enrichment Services. In many ways, this is my dream job and has allowed me to make incredible institutional changes across campus that have created more inclusive practices for first-generation, lower-income, and/or undocumented/DACA students. While we still have a lot of work to do, I am very proud of the strides we've made thus far.
  • Where can you be found around campus?
    • In meetings across campus :). I'm rarely in my office in Foster Walker, so you can typically find me in meetings in Norris, Crown, Searle, Scott Hall, and sometimes the Black House or MCC!
  • What do you like to do in your spare time? 
    • I love spending time with my family, going to live music shows in the summer - my favorite venue is The Promontory and SPACE here in Evanston. I love old-school hip hop, hosting dinner parties at my place, and enjoy talking politics/watching MSNBC.
