I am the Business/Administrative Associate in the Office of the Dean of Students ever since 2012.  My role in the office is to manage the business and administrative processes ranging from financial services to manage our office budget to processing HR paperwork.  I am also the primary contact person for financial transactions of student governments on campus from the Health Science colleges as well as the Graduate and Undergraduate student governments.  The front-desk student employees assist with all student government transactions under my supervision. Prior to this, I served as a Special Events Facilitator in the Office of the Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs from 2007-2012.  I had the privilege of meeting Deans, Vice Chancellors, Vice Provosts and planned welcome and farewell receptions.  I assisted in the planning and execution of the Provost Retreat and Faculty Awards Dinner during my time in the Office of the Provost.  I have a Bachelors in Psychology from UIC which I hope to further with a Masters and PhD one day.


Favorite ways to spend my time are cooking with my family, traveling the world & immersing myself in the culture, decorating my home, getting absorbed in the magic of movies, music, and art, and enjoying nature somewhere and somehow.
