Heather Boggs Chase
Chicago Area Regional Representative
Freemont Ross "Little Giants"
Greetings from Chicago! I moved to Chicago after graduating from Miami in 1998 and have been here since—I live in the Lincoln Square neighborhood with my husband, golden retriever, and two-year-old daughter. I've also worked professionally in the admissions field for the last ten years, so you can imagine my excitement when the opportunity to work for my alma mater in Chicago came up—perfect! I work with Chicago-area high schools, students, and families throughout Miami's admission application process, and I'm a "local" contact for all-things-Miami in the Windy City and all cities within Illinois, Wisconsin, Minnesota and Iowa. If you're living in one of those areas and considering Miami, chances are we will cross paths soon!
Favorite Miami Moment
My mom would tell you that she chose Miami for me, but I'll tell you the truth, I chose Miami, too! For me, Miami had such a breadth of academic excellence across disciplines (just in case you change your major, which I did, three times!), and the campus truly looks like a postcard every day. Oxford is the quintessential college town, from its red brick streets to the famous bagel shop. But don't take it from me. I highly recommend visiting Oxford to see Miami for yourself!
