Jonathon was born and raised on the southside of Chicago. In his teenage years, Jonathon’s family moved to the northwestern Chicago suburbs and upon high school graduation he began working as a full time associate, and later, a store leader in retail. This work experience helped him clarify his desire to help and talk with people from different backgrounds on a daily basis. To explore this realization further, Jonathon became a first-generation college student to continue learning more about himself, the world, and the professional opportunities he might enjoy most. 


Ultimately, Jonathon studied at William Rainey Harper College (A.A degree) and Northern Illinois University (B.A., MS.Ed) and discovered a passion for working with college students exploring their academic and career possibilities. He has been working in higher education since 2005.
