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

My favorite part about working at Northwestern is the culture and how they are always encouraging learning; it is a very collaborative environment. The campus is also a beautiful place to work. My favorite part of my job is working and interacting with a variety of departments and areas that are doing great work from research to student engagement and anything in between. I like being able to help find great hires who will contribute to this great work.

Do you belong to any Northwestern affinity groups or organizations?
I belong to ANUW.

What do you enjoy about being part of these groups?
I like the different speakers they bring in that share their own experiences about being a working woman in a variety of different areas and roles.

What do you enjoy doing outside of work?
Outside of work, I like running along the lakeshore and in the different races Chicago has to offer. I also enjoy reading, traveling, and eating.
