Favorite part of working for Project Hire-ED

I get to work with a team of fantastic colleagues in Project Hire-Ed and we work together to serve as a bridge between employers and College of DuPage. Through this work, we impact students by supporting access to education and employment and helping them build their careers.

Favorite Part of working for College of DuPage

I feel strongly connected to the mission of the college in serving the community and I enjoy working with great colleagues across the college.

Favorite hobbies and extracurricular activities outside of work

When I’m not working you can find me hiking with my dog, baking with my kids, playing a game of Sequence with my family or on a lake in Michigan.

Favorite part of working for Project Hire-ED

As a long-time career coach, I know that we are happier and more fulfilled when we find meaning in our work. I can’t think of a better way to help people reach their professional goals than through the work-based learning we offer at Project Hire-ED.

I know that COD is tremendous at bridging the skill gap between education and the world of work. Everyone here is committed to student success.

I love to travel, especially overseas, and cooking is my favorite way to clear my mind. I write for fun, and have been working side by side with my children on their own writing projects.

I enjoy helping to spread the word about our “earn and learn” model. Where else could one get paid to go to college, earn a full-time salary, learn great skills and have no college debt! It’s a fantastic program.

I love being part of a school that truly cares about student success.

Favorite hobbies and Extracurricular activities outside of work

You'll find me planning my next international trip, (2 more continents to go!) froliching outside and having fun with family and friends.
