Position: Case Administrator
Court: Northern District of Illinois, Eastern Division
How long have you been with the Federal Judiciary? 8 years
How long have you been a member of the NCBC, and how do you get involved? I have been a member of NCBC for 4 years. I got involved with the NCBC through the annual membership drive and have assisted in planning the 2019 NCBC Chicago conference.
What is your favorite NCBC Conference experience? My favorite NCBC experience was the “Planning Your Career in the Federal Judiciary” breakout session from last year's conference in New York. I really enjoyed the presentation of the resources we have as Judiciary employees, creating a career "roadmap" and self-assessment. Over the next several years there will be many job opportunities available within the Judiciary and it is great that the Judiciary wants to prepare us for the future. I have attended 2 NCBC Conferences (San Francisco and New York) and after each conference I was able to take away so much information to better myself personally and professionally. I loved meeting other bankruptcy clerks from around the country to learn about how they perform their duties and learn from them about how their courts operate.
How would you like to be more involved with the NCBC in the future? In the future, I would like to join the mentorship program to further develop my skills and partner with someone from another court. Additionally, the Northern District of Illinois is extremely excited to host the 2019 NCBC conference. Chicago has such a rich history, amazing architecture, world class museums, endless shopping, entertainment, famous food, beautiful lake views and countless beaches. The after-hours events, Opening Reception and Dinner and Dance Reception, are sure to be the talk of the conference...think rooftop views and skyline sights. Bring your dancing shoes and be prepared for an excellent time. There is nothing better than summer in Chicago! We are looking forward to seeing everyone!
