Higher Ed Work Experience

  • Marian University 2010-present
    Office of Financial Aid/Assistant Director of Student Loan & Counseling. I work with and advise students and their families on all aspects of financial aid, and helping them in making the decision to make Marian University their school.

Marian University is a community where people truly care for each other. There is a feeling of peace and tranquility when you enter the campus, a feeling of being in a good place.

My favorite times on campus are the fall when students come to school, watching the excitement as they see old friends again after the summer break, and the wonder in the new freshmen students as they find their way around campus and make friendships that will last a lifetime. And graduation, you can feel the joy and happiness in the air as the new graduates line up and hear them talk about their expectations of what is next to come.
