Human Resources Manager

Continuing my HR career with the British International School of Chicago, South Loop has been such an enriching experience and I feel incredibly fortunate to be a part of the learning and growing environment that BISC-SL provides. I am proud to be a part of a team comprised of many intelligent and inspiring people that support education and international culture in such a positive environment.

I grew up in Iowa and attended Iowa State University to pursue my degree in Communication Studies. As an undergraduate, I had the opportunity to travel abroad to Denmark, Germany, and Sweden to learn about business practices in different countries and fell in love with travel and learning about other cultures.

After I graduated, I was able to apply my studies to a variety of administration and HR positions throughout the United States. I had the opportunity to travel, live, and work in Florida, California, North Carolina, New York, and now Chicago, Illinois where I hope to make a long-term commitment in my career with BISC-SL.

In my time outside of school, I enjoy exploring the amazing city of Chicago, reading a good book, cooking and finding new recipes to enjoy, practicing yoga, and spending time with friends and family. I enjoy exploring new places and experiencing all that an area has to offer so travelling is also an important part of my life and a part that I hope to continue to expand in the years to come.
