About the Counselor

What's a favorite memory of your college years at Saint Xavier?

I have a lot of favorite memories from my time at SXU. As a part of the radio station, I was able to interview and meet a lot of cool and famous musicians/comedians. My all-time favorite though would be interviewing my favorite comedian Dane Cook during my freshman year.

What was your major in college, and why did you choose it? How has it helped you do your job at SXU?

My major in college was Music Education. I chose it because I've always loved music and have always wanted to help students. It has helped me with my job at SXU because I'm already used to working with high school students.

What makes SXU different from other universities?

SXU is a place where students can develop and build lasting relationships they'll keep for the rest of their lives. The best way to describe it for me is to quote the Cheers theme song, "Sometimes you want to go where everybody knows your name."

Cubs or Sox?

Go, Cubs, Go!
