Why are you excited to work at Roompact?
I am excited because Roompact is exciting! The things I do on a day to day basis blend my previous experiences in relationship building and information system management but push me to learn new things and explore opportunities. The team here is extremely supportive and motivating. It is a privilege and a joy to work with such talented people on an extremely useful and impactful product.
What philosophy or values inform your work?
During my time at Loyola the Jesuit values really got to me. One that always sticks out is the idea of cura personalis or care for the whole person. In practice, my cura personalis is defined by consistent respect and empathy towards others recognizing that each person is a multifaceted individual who deserves to be treated as such.
What were you involved in when you were a student in college?
Like the rest of the Roompact staff, I kept myself pretty busy. I was a member and leader in my social sorority and was sent to represent our chapter at the international convention. I worked as a research assistant in a psychology lab on acceptance and diversity. And during my last year, I interned at Make-A-Wish Illinois, working on granting wishes, corporate partnerships and community events, and walks. Oh, and petting every single dog I spotted on and off campus.
What is your favorite college memory?
It has to be the Cubs World Series Parade. It was on a weekday so we should have had class but many professors cancelled class or moved due dates and quizzes so we could experience the hundreds of thousands (millions?) of people celebrating the Cubs’ first winning season in over 100 years. People were lined up half a block deep along the parade route. It was a sea of Cubbie blue everywhere you looked and I walked down the middle of Michigan Avenue like it was a sidewalk. It was absolutely surreal.
What is one fun fact that not many people know about you?
My two very favorite Christmas presents as a child were a real (not a toy) fully functional cash register and a double pack of Sour Cream and Onion Pringles.
What do you do for fun? Any hobbies?
There is nothing I love more than a good musical. I have been to 30+ Broadways shows and way too many community and regional productions to count. On a trip to New York City a couple years back, I packed six shows into only four days.
