Before joining the admissions team here at Western Illinois University Quad Cities I was with admissions at John Wood Community College for almost 6 years prior to relocating to the Quad Cities with my family. I joined Western Illinois University Quad Cities in May of 2010 and I am so excited to be a part of a University that truly puts students needs first.
