Jamie Mahoney

I am Jamie Mahoney-  a classic type-A – overachieving- super-planning – kick-butt-chick, and I am honored to be your first-ever Transfer Blogger!


I am a senior Urban Studies major with a Public Service focus, with minors in Communication Studies, Sociology, and International Studies.  I am a transfer from Harper College and a commuter from Schaumburg, Illinois. I have been highly involved in various activities and leadership roles at Elmhurst College, but this year you can find me leading Active Minds at Elmhurst College or working as the Sustainability Intern.


Outside of academics, I balance a lot of other crazy-awesome things. I am Assistant Director of Sales at a creative design and marketing solutions firm called BaseZero Productions, I serve as a graphic designer for the Hoffman Estates Chamber of Commerce and Industry… and the list goes on and on. Seriously, just check out my LinkedIn. I love academic advising and I am always willing to help other students achieve more than they had ever imagined possible. Let me help you plan your future!


In my“free time” I enjoy longboarding, rock climbing, and fitness kickboxing. I am also a great connector, so don’t be surprised if I toss my business card your way :) My one hope for this blog: My Elmhurst Experience inspires, motivates, challenges, and influences anyone that reads it to reach their potential.
