Greetings from Chicago! I moved to the Windy City after graduating from Miami in 1998 and have been here since. I live in the Lincoln Square neighborhood of the city with my husband, two young daughters, and our golden retriever. I've worked professionally in the admissions field for the last ten years, joining Miami’s team in 2011. I work with Chicago-area high schools, students, and families throughout Miami's application process, and I'm a "local" contact for all-things-Miami in Illinois and Wisconsin. If you live in one of those states, and you’re considering Miami, I hope we’ll 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!
