My career has been driven by client relationships, so I was excited to join Coyle earlier this year, given their reputation for white glove customer service. I spent several years in the art world, bringing the same standard of high-level care necessary when working with curators and collectors. This shared focus on customer relationships has made me feel welcome in joining the team at Coyle.

I obtained a BA with honors from Columbia College Chicago, with a focus in Art History. I then moved to New York City to accept a job with Christie’s auction house, working on their Client Services team and assisting in coordinating their marquee Evening Sales. Chicago has always been home, and I was eager to return. Prior to my position at Coyle, I worked for The Conservation Center, the largest privately-owned art restoration lab in the United States. I hold a Certificate in Provenance Research from The University of Siena, and seek out an afternoon in a museum whenever possible.

In my free time, I collect vintage glass and frequent antique shops with my fiancé. On the weekends, you’ll find us chasing our dog Susan, or walking through our long-time neighborhood, Logan Square.
