HOW DOES IT FEEL TO BE BACK AT LOYOLA? • I feel that it’s right. When I first came to the States eight years ago, Chicago was my home away from home, and Loyola was my second family. So it’s like coming home.


WHY SHOULD ALUMNI REMAIN INVOLVED AT LOYOLA? • There are a number of reasons. We can help reconnect you with the experience you had here. But we also want alumni to be a part of the future of Loyola. The values and tradi- tions are the same ones that have always been here, but we want our alumni to be a part of the growth here as well.


DO YOU HAVE ANY PRIORITIES FOR THE COMING YEAR? • I’d like to listen more—to build Alumni Relations around the needs and interests of our alumni. We want to understand what is meaningful to alumni. We want to be accessible. There is an open door. Career and professional development is also a high prior- ity, whether it’s making connections between employers and Loyola talent, or providing guidance and mentorship for how to navigate a career change.


WHAT DO YOU DO WHEN YOU’RE NOT AT WORK? • My husband and I enjoy hiking—we go a lot. We just came back from a trip to the Upper Peninsula (Michigan), and we recently did a hike in Palos Heights (Illinois). I taught myself to knit, and I’m taking piano lessons on the weekends at the Old Town School of Folk Music. I started it a year ago. I love to travel.


WHERE WOULD YOU TRAVEL IF YOU COULD GO ANYWHERE? • I want to go to places that are different from everything I’ve been exposed to. I’ve traveled Europe and North America; I’ve been to China and Australia. If I had to pick a trip, I’d pick Africa. But the next one we’ll do is to South America—I want to see Machu Picchu.
