What do you like to do for fun?

One of my favorite activities is just hanging out with my friends around the city and exploring new places. We also love going to White Sox’s games in the summer and taking long walks on the 606 trail. Some family activities I like to do for fun include traveling together and going to Florida with my younger brothers. In my free time I enjoy taking yoga classes as well at CorePower Yoga.

Where did you go to school?

I attended DePaul University in Chicago from 2017-2021, and I studied Business Management with a concentration in Human Resources. I’d say my favorite college course was my internship class on Non-Profit Organizations. I worked with an organization that helped underdeveloped third world countries receive books for school aged children. It was very rewarding to see the organization I was interning with deliver these children’s books to schools and help the communities.

What do you like about your job?

What I like about being Recruiting Coordinator/Operations Assistant at DWS is being able to help the recruiters, as well as continuing to learn more skills all the time. Last week I worked on web responses from candidates and clients for the first time. I’m currently learning the process of how to schedule interviews and entering the information into our recruiting database, so I’m excited to see what else I can continue learning in this area.

What do you like about DW Simpson?

What I like the most about DWS is the positive work environment as well as all my coworkers! Everyone here is super friendly and helpful and I have felt very welcomed since I started only a few months ago.
