What do you like about your job?

The decision to attend college can be a very stressful time in a student and parent's life. I feel that it is my job to help the family through the process of understanding all that Saint Xavier has to offer and making sure that we are the best fit for them. The best part about my job is helping students understand the importance of college and how going to college can create opportunities for you in the future.

What is your favorite season in Chicago?

My favorite season in Chicago is fall. My family and I all love the fall season, from apple picking, carving pumpkins, Halloween, Thanksgiving, and of course watching football with my sons. It is a great time of year for my family and I.

What is you best advice for students looking to go to college?

The best advice that I can give to every high school student who is interested in enrolling in a college or university is always work to your fullest potential. Participate in activities you like because your high school career is preparing you for your college life.
