As Director of Health Sciences and Research Communications with UIC’s Office of Public Affairs, I am responsible for media relations and communications covering UI Health -- UIC's hospital, outpatient clinics, and seven health sciences colleges -- and UIC's College of Engineering.

I am passionate about storytelling and am proud to help find and share powerful UIC student, patient and faculty stories and to promote UIC’s impactful research initiatives to internal and external audiences.

My past experience includes more than 10 years of communication and public relations in both public and private higher education and health care institutions. I am a graduate of Boston University, where I earned a master’s degree in communication, and of the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, where I earned a bachelor’s degree in English literature and rhetoric.
