About the Counselor

What do you do for fun?

I love to run and I love to read, although not at the same time.

What is your favorite season in Chicago? Why?

Definitely fall. With fall comes the falling leaves, the nice cool weather and of course Da BEARS.

What are you favorite places to eat near the SXU campus? There is a reason why I picked up running as a hobby, I love to eat. My favorites include Pop's Italian Beef and Chi Tung Chinese & Thai.

What is your favorite story from SXU history?

I really like how the Sisters of Mercy adapted to the early challenges they faced while carrying out their mission. The Sisters of Mercy did what they needed to do to ensure their message would be heard for generations.

Cubs or Sox?

I only like professional baseball, so of course I am a Sox fan.

Last concert attended?

The last concert I went to was a George Strait concert. I had never been to a George Strait concert before, but it was one of the best concerts I had ever been to. Luckily, I will have the chance to see him again on his farewell tour.
