What is the best part about being a Rooseveltian?

From the beginning Roosevelt has comprised itself of strong, driven and influential people.  The best part is being among those in the past, present and what we are building to be the future of Roosevelt.  There is always so much greatness surrounding you to draw from in the past and look forward to in the future.

Favorite fun fact about Roosevelt

The Wabash Building is the second tallest university building in the United States.  Now that’s taking your education to a “higher” level!

Describe your role when it comes to helping student

While I want all students to experience the glory of Roosevelt University, I understand the process of choosing the right institution to pursue a higher education is a tough process.  I aim to build relationships with students so they feel comfortable in their decision making process and have an ally rooting for them in their corner.  I want them to be successful!

Best way to spend a day off of work

Spending it playing at a park with my dog, Murphy. He is a border collie mix that I adopted a year and a half ago and is probably the sweetest, most energetic dog you will ever meet.

Bears, Bulls, Blackhawks, Cubs, Sox?

DAAAAA BEARS!  I’ve been a bears fan since birth! I don’t really follow any other sport other than football.
