My passion for helping others and building on valued relationships is what gives me joy in coming to work every day. As the Market Administrative Assistant for the Chicago Illinois Market, I strive to help others grow and succeed in their practices. Being of service to advisors and working with the amazing individuals within the Chicago Market leadership team is a truly rewarding career.
Early in life, I always had a passion for art. Prior to joining Waddell & Reed in 2011, I earned an Associate's Degree in Graphic Design with a career in art still in mind. However, once in the corporate workplace, I believed helping others was my true passion and decided Psychology was a more fitting background for my career aspirations. After years of attending night school part-time and working full-time, I graduated with a B.A. in Psychology from Roosevelt University in 2015. Even without pursuing a full-time career in art, I've been able to use my graphic design skills in my position and still enjoy designing and creating outside of the office.
Outside of work, I enjoy spending free time with my husband Bobby and our two boxers. In 2019, my husband and I welcomed a baby girl into this world, Andi. Together, we enjoy relaxing living life outdoors, gardening, golfing, enjoying summers in Door County, WI.
