I received my bachelor's degree in Psychology from Lewis University in 2009. I will be obtaining a master's degree from Lewis in Counseling Psychology in June 2016.
I grew up in Plainfield, IL but currently live in Oswego with my husband and our furry baby, Gabriel.
What brought me to Waubonsee?
I have always felt that coaching is my calling. There is nothing more rewarding to me than playing a part in a successful trajectory. When I heard about this great Connect4Success program, it was as if the universe plopped a giant neon sign in front of me saying, "Make A Difference HERE!" The position is comprised of all the best parts of counseling for me; connecting with students, making a difference, getting involved. I am very excited to help students achieve their dreams and I already feel right at home at Waubonsee!
Advice to college students/why should students take advantage of C4S coaching?
I remember what it's like to be a student...it's exciting but also very, very overwhelming! I believe that these are the best years of your life so why not let us help you with the stressful, overwhelming parts so you can focus on becoming the best you that you can be? Allow a team of people who care for you and your success to guide you through the sometimes tumultuous waters of this stage in the game.
When I’m not at Waubonsee, you can find me…
Most likely at home! I just got married about 6 months ago and we are still working on uniting our two kingdoms for our perfect happily ever after! We have a beautiful Akita/German Shepherd mix named Gabriel and he definitely demands most of our time and attention...both of which we give to him happily! When I do want to go out, it's usually to the movies. I love superhero movies and anything Disney!
