M.L.D. Leadership Studies with Higher Education Emphasis and B.A. Exercise Science and Spanish, North Central College, Naperville, IL

Welcome to Northern Illinois University.  I am a recent member of the College of Engineering serving as the Outreach Specialist/Recruiter.  I am thrilled to embark on this journey with you as this is a pivotal time in your lives.   

I am a recent graduate of North Central College, home of the Cardinals, earning a Bachelor of Art in Exercise Science and Spanish and a Master of Leadership Development with an emphasis in Higher Education.  

I have chosen to flee the nest and join the den to become part of the Huskie family.  Northern Illinois University has so much to offer, from athletics and organizations to intramurals and internships, the possibilities are endless.   

My goal is to help you in any way possible- answer any questions you may have and guide you in the right direction as you determine the path that is right for you.  Get excited because I am eager to get to know who you are, understand your story, and guide you as you explore NIU.  Please feel free to contact me at any time as I am happy to answer any and all questions you may have.

Go Huskies!
