What do you like about your job?

I like getting to do what I love, making digital content, and knowing that it's for something that will make a difference.

Where did you work before YJC?

Loyola University Chicago's Marketing and Communications department. I was a web marketing intern.

What was your first job?

I worked in the lingerie department at Carson's at Lincolnwood Mall.

What did you learn from your first job?

Attitude makes a huge difference. If it's obvious you don't want to be there then you'll have a bad experience, the customer will have a bad experience, and no one will be happy with the outcome.

Has your career path gone how you expected?

I think it's too soon to tell.

Fun fact:

I'm crazy about dogs. I like them more than people.
