I started at Stritch in August of 2013 and I'm originally from Chicago. I speak English and basic Spanish, and studied abroad in Brazil in college. Traveling is one of my passions along with learning about the cultures of my students from around the world. When studying abroad, I played soccer with many Brazilians, and realized my passion to work with people from different parts of the world. I started my Higher Education profession as a Graduate Assistant in athletics recruiting many international athletes to play soccer. This fueled my drive to get involved in International Education and Study Abroad. I am interested in international education, leadership, orientation, student activities, and intercultural communication. I love to play and watch sports, especially soccer.

"I chose, and continue to stay at Cardinal Stritch University because of the people. The students, faculty, and staff that I have had the pleasure to work with have truly made my experience everything that it has been. It is so nice to be able to walk around the campus and talk to many students, often knowing them by name. The small atmosphere of Stritch is truly familial and has always made me feel welcome."
