"Stritch is a special place that will open up new worlds and new perspectives, and I have seen first-hand the life-changing power of higher education. I spent the first ten years of my career at Stritch as the Director of Student Leadership and Involvement, where I was lucky enough to work with amazing student leaders, develop student-led initiatives that improved the Stritch experience, and create experiential learning opportunities for students. After working at other institutions, I chose to return to Stritch because of the welcoming campus community that is centered around our four Franciscan values. I am deeply inspired by the social justice mission of the institution and excited for the opportunity to work with Stritch students to ensure that everyone has access to high-quality, transformative learning experiences throughout their time in college."
