My Hometown: Elgin, IL

Why did I choose ISU: I chose ISU because of the Department of Residence's commitment to community engagement and inclusion which match my own passions. I also appreciate the investment and care the Department of Residence puts into the personal and professional development of staff and students. I felt like I was treated like family the second I stepped on campus.

What I like best about working at at ISU: I'm really excited to return to a large university and helping make a big campus feel small and like home!
