What is your favorite part about working at Northwestern?  What is your favorite part of your job?  

My favorite part of my job is building connections with candidates and helping them find the perfect opportunity at Northwestern. Whether it’s screening candidates, extending offers, or letting them know about a new opening, I love delivering great news.

Do you belong to any Northwestern affinity groups or organizations?
I belong to APIDA (Asian Pacific Islander Desi American) Staff Affinity Group, or ASAG.

What do you enjoy about being part of these groups?
Since I work remotely from Michigan, I enjoy being looped into what’s happening on campus. I appreciate that it’s a safe space where we can share and discuss our experiences.

What do you enjoy doing outside of work?
In my free time, I love playing video games (PC and Nintendo Switch) and spending time with Gus, my 8-year-old Jack Russell Terrier. You’ll also catch me gulfing down Dairy Queen Blizzards and relaxing to some Taylor Swift.
