About Me

I am a graduate of the Paralegal Studies Program and prior to joining Roosevelt, I worked as both a litigation paralegal and an attorney in the Chicago legal community. As Director, I manage all aspects of both our Post-Baccalaureate Certificate and Bachelor of Arts program options. My responsibilities include program development, student recruiting, academic advising, curriculum development and the hiring of faculty. In my role, I am responsible for ensuring the program’s compliance with the American Bar Association Guidelines for the Approval of Paralegal Education Programs. In addition, I am the director of Roosevelt’s Master of Arts degree in Conflict and Mediation. I also serve as a prelaw advisor to undergraduate students interested in law school.
