Community involvement: Currently on the special events committee at the Crisis Nursery, Illinois Athletics Representative to the Illinois Marathon, Tom Jones Challenger League and various community service events through Illinois Athletics. Also, completed the United Way Emerging Community Leaders Program in 2013.
Proudest professional accomplishment: Hosting the 2013 NCAA men’s and women’s tennis championships at the University of Illinois. Seeing the community, the university and athletics come together to host a championship not typically held in the Midwest and to do it at such a high level was amazing to see. It was an honor and a privilege to be a part of it.
From the nominator: “She is a true leader and understands the importance of coordinating the many different areas of a major event.” – Kent Brown, associate AD/Media Relations, University of Illinois Division of Intercollegiate Athletics
