I am the Program Director for Public Interest & Chicago Initiatives in Notre Dame Law School's Career Development Office, where I focus on Chicago careers, externships, public interest career paths, networking coaching, and general career counseling. I am based full-time in Notre Dame's Chicago office, where I pioneer Notre Dame Law School's employer outreach efforts and manage site visits for the Notre Dame Law in Chicago externship program. I also return to South Bend regularly to conduct in-person counseling sessions.
I am a diehard Denver Broncos fan, paleo eater, powerlifter, crossfitter, stand-up comedy lover, beer drinker, and my life's philosophy is to say "Yes!" to new experiences and to approach life with a sense of humor and positive attitude. Much of my experience in career counseling is informed by my various interests so if I analogize trying to write a strong cover letter to perfecting the deadlift, that is why.
I live with my husband in the Edgewater neighborhood of Chicago.
