Chaifetz School of Business, ’03
Regional Vice President at Tom James
Current City: St. Louis, Mo.
It laid the foundation for a successful career. Living in Madrid, Spain, provided the opportunity to study other cultures around the world. After graduation, I began my career at Tom James. Today it is the largest custom clothing manufacturer in the world and has offices in over 100 cities worldwide.
Being part of International Business Club, AKPsi and Club Soccer.
Connecting with classmates I haven’t seen in a few years.
Social Work, '03
Executive Director of Dispute Resolution Institute, Inc.
SLU solidified for me that I wanted to devote my life to public service. I have had some wonderful opportunities to put my experiences and education from SLU to use for the public good. I worked as a social worker in foster care for several years before attending law school. Currently, I'm the executive director of a nonprofit which provides free mediation services to people who could not otherwise afford it. In addition, I've served on nonprofit boards, including my current position on Illinois State CASA's board of directors. My experiences at SLU prepared me to be a leader in service to others.
There are too many to pick just one! But one of my favorite memories would have to be my time working for Residence Life. I had the opportunity to work as a Resident Advisor and then an Assistant Residence Coordinator of University Apartments. It was challenging but so rewarding. If you have worked in Res Life, you know you can handle almost anything that is thrown at you in the future.
I am most looking forward to reconnecting with friends and faculty. I'm also excited to bring my daughter to campus for the first time. I'm hopeful she'll become a Billiken one day!
