I have been around the SIU campus my entire life! I am from Carterville and both of my parents retired from SIU. I began working at SIU as a full-time civil service employee in 2006. I have held the civil service positions of Office Support Specialist, Office Manager, and my current position is an Administrative Aide in University Communications and Marketing. SIU is my Alma Mater, earning both undergraduate and graduate degrees here. I’m currently working on my Ph.D. in Workforce Education & Development.
I have a daughter, Jessica, 29, an SIU Alumni, too! Jessica graduated in 2012 with her B.S. in Radiologic Sciences, and lives & works in Springfield, IL. I don’t get to see her as often as I’d like to, but I’m proud of her accomplishments!
From 2013-2015, I was the Secretary for ACsE and found that experience very exciting and rewarding! I am happy to be involved once again as a Civil Service Council member and look forward to working for my fellow civil service constituents.
