Favorite thing about working at Carthage
“I feel like the lake is too obvious of an answer, but it is definitely a huge perk! My favorite thing about working at Carthage is the one-team mentality amongst faculty and staff. We are all working toward one goal and supporting one another in delivering an excellent experience for our students. Everyone is willing to lend a helping hand to get the job done!”
Some of Liz’s favorite things include coffee, true crime podcasts, and spending time at the beach. She loves traveling, celebrating holidays, Cubs baseball, and face timing her nephew, Maxwell, any chance she can.
