What do you like about your job?

I love that I get to have a positive impact and serve others through my work. I've been very lucky in my life and I think it's important to give back so that others can get the same opportunities I've had.

Where did you work before YJC?

Before coming to Youth Job Center I was a Financial Advisor at Morgan Stanley, specializing in IRA's and Retirement Planning. 

What was your first job?

I was 13 years old and I worked at the Olympia Fields Country Club as a caddy. 

Has your career path gone how you expected?

Not quite. I worked in Development while I was a student at Loyola University Chicago and wanted to continue on that path when I graduated. However, life took me in a different direction for a few years but everything I learned while on my path has helped me to get where I am today!

Fun fact:

I am an avid football fan, especially the Bears and the Notre Dame Fightin' Irish. In my lifetime I've probably been to more than 30 college or professional football games.
