Learn about your Admission Counselor:

Favorite thing about North Central: I love how welcoming everyone is and how strong the community is! Wherever you go on campus you're always welcomed with a smile! The second you step on campus, you feel as if you've always been part of the community. At North Central, you definitely feel at home.

Words I use to describe North Central students: Ambitious, hard-working, intelligent, and passionate - to name a few! 

Why did I choose to become an Admission Counselor/staff member at North Central? I enjoy working in admission and love helping students navigate through their collegiate career! My goal is to be the best resource for students, in order to make their transition as smooth as possible. I also love North Central's emphasis on diversity and sustainability, as well as their liberal arts background! 

Favorite Naperville restaurant: I love Nando's Peri-Peri! The food there is amazing! However, downtown has so many incredible options, you can't go wrong! 

Favorite season in Naperville: Definitely fall! Campus is absolutely beautiful in the fall and it signifies the start of a new school year, so the energy on campus is unbeatable. 

Advice to students: Follow your heart and don't be afraid to ask questions! This is your time to do what you want to do and be who you want to become. We are here to help you every step of the way. Every question is a good question, and we'll be here to answer it!
