Debi McGuigan Jones and Beth Given sat down for a quick “interview” with one of the newest members of the NDLS family, Leslie Berg, to learn more about what brought her to the law school:
Leslie works in Suite 2110 and joined the law school back in October as Faculty Administrative Assistant to Professors Mary Ellen O’Connell, Bill Kelly, Jimmy Gurule, Patty O’Hara, Peg Brinig, and David Schwartz. She joined us from CUSE, (Center for Undergraduate Scholarly Engagement) which is centered in Geddes Hall. As their administrative assistant and media specialist, Leslie helped with branding for the center when she started working there 3 years ago, and did much work designing posters, webpages, and more for the Center. Leslie hails originally from Hamilton, Ohio, and went to Ohio University in Athens, Ohio, where she studied graphic design and art history. After college Leslie moved with her roommates to Chicago, where she taught graphic design at William Rainey Harper College while designing for the Mount Prospect Public Library. It was in Chicago that she met her husband, Norm, and she moved to South Bend nine years ago when Norm, who worked with Motorola, was transferred for a job here. Leslie loves Notre Dame and enjoys attending football, hockey, and many other sporting events on campus with Norm and their two kids. They also love taking long walks with their Siberian Husky, Zoey, at local parks, in neighborhoods, and around campus. In less than two months, Leslie already feels settled into her job here at the Law School and says she loves it, especially being able to help the “amazing faculty members do the work they do.” We’re excited to have Leslie in the law school, and hope if you haven’t yet had the chance to meet her, that you will stop by to introduce yourself!
