I was born and raised right outside of Chicago, so it's only right that I recruit students there. I graduated from the University of Illinois in Champaign with a bachelor’s degree in Sociology and Psychology. I earned my master’s degree in Educational Leadership and am working on a doctoral degree in the same field. I was very unsure of attending a larger university, especially coming from a small private high school, but it was one of the best decisions I have ever made. I started working with the admissions office as a student tour guide at Illinois and found that I enjoyed helping families and students. I have worked in admissions for over five years, and my love for helping families increases each year. When I’m not recruiting students all over the Midwest, you can find me putting together pages in my scrapbook, reading in a corner, or making candles!
If I could give any student advice about the college search process, it would be to visit a school or talk with an admissions representative from a university that is not in the front of your mind. We all have an idea of what college is supposed to look like but you may be able to find something even better by stepping out of your comfort zone. My second piece of advice is to ask every question that comes to your mind about the colleges you are considering. We are here to help!
