My name is Ahtziri Alviso and I am from the northwest suburbs of Chicago and a DePaul University graduate! I graduated in the spring of 2022 with a Bachelor’s degree in International Studies/Global Affairs and Spanish. As a first-generation Latina college student from an immigrant family, I developed a strong passion for the advocacy of human rights, and diversity inclusion. Devoted to creating and fostering a vibrant community, I have held positions during my time at DePaul dedicated to serving students with similar backgrounds as mine, such as being a student assistant for the Latin American and Latino Studies Department, Center for Latino Research, Peer Leader, and Resident Advisor.
I chose to work in transfer admissions after graduation because I love working with students and want to help them take advantage of all the opportunities DePaul has to offer. As a transfer admissions counselor, it is my mission to serve as a resource for students, help them accomplish their goals, and realize their full social, interpersonal, intellectual, and cultural abilities. I am so excited to continue my mission of advocacy for diversity inclusion, and to create a human-centered supportive atmosphere for all students.
In my spare time I love to explore different coffee shops in the city and spend time with my family and friends. I am fluent in Spanish as well, and I am happy to help Spanish speaking students with the transfer process!

My name is Cynthia Delgadillo and I am a transfer admission counselor. I’m from Blue Island, a southwest suburb of Chicago. I fell in love with DePaul being a transfer student myself and began my career in the Office of Admission after graduation. I’ve been at DePaul University for over 15 years and am a proud Double Demon, having earned both my bachelor’s and master’s in education.
I chose to work in admission because I like helping students. Specifically, I like working with students that have transfer credit because I understand the excitement and frustrations that come in choosing an institution to complete their bachelor’s degree. I enjoy connecting with students and setting up a specific plan for them to ease the transfer process.
I enjoy finding new restaurants for brunch as well as watching movies and shows on Netflix. My kids and I love to go to the beach or pool in the summer months. I am fluent in Spanish as well and am here to help with the transfer process.

For my entire career, my goal has been to create equity and access to higher education. I have over 23 years of working in education. I have worked as a public-school college counselor, a community college advisor, and as an admission counselor. I believe in helping all types of students gain access to their higher education goals! I was a transfer student myself, so I understand the challenges transfer students can face.
In addition to my education and professional career, my love of music, art, travel, photography, film, and storytelling influences everything I do. When I am not on one of my long walks or watching my teenage son rock out on his bass with his band in Austin, I can be found looking for new or used vinyl at one of the many record shops around town, listening to music, or planning my next trip to Chicago! I am currently the Texas Representative for Transfer Students at DePaul, and I couldn't be more excited!
Fun Fact: I have one of only two known photos of
Phineas Gage (an actual relative of mine). It is published in the January 2018 National Geographic magazine, and it is also displayed at the Harvard Countway Library Medical Museum in Boston.

My name is Cyndee Newman and I am from the western suburbs of Chicago, specifically Downers Grove. I graduated from Benet Academy in Lisle Illinois, and continued my education at the University of Central Missouri. Here I received my bachelor’s degree in Communication specializing in public relations.
I have been in higher education for about 10 years, and with DePaul University since 2018. I love working in admissions, specifically with the transfer and adult student population because it gives me an opportunity to not only facilitate the process to help students achieve their goals of degree completion, but also provides an opportunity to share information with a unique population that often times balances life, work and school.
I am a bit of a foodie, and enjoy not only cooking but especially baking for fun. I make a pretty amazing pound cake, that with strawberries and whipped cream, is decadent! When I have free time traveling is what I enjoy doing the most.
I am a first generation Haitian American, and therefore speak Haitian Creole, and French fluently.

My name is Madeline Walsh and I am a transfer admissions counselor. I am originally from Cannon Falls, Minnesota, and I completed my B.A. in Public Relations at Hofstra University.
I have spent the entirety of my career working with transfer students. Every student deserves the opportunity to achieve their educational goals and I am dedicated to helping my students accomplish theirs. I love working with students one-on-one to ensure they have a comprehensive, customized plan to transfer.
In my free time, I love exploring Chicago and finding new restaurants to frequent. But, in my opinion, there’s nothing better than curling up on the couch with my two cats at the end of a long day.

Originally from Wrigleyville, Chicago (born and raised Cubs fan). Fun fact: I worked at Wrigley Field for four years while a student at DePaul University. I am a Double Demon. What does that mean? I earned a Bachelor of Arts in Sociology and a Master of Education in Counseling at DePaul University.
I love working with Transfer students and helping you finish what you started. I believe in the mission, vision, purpose and values of DePaul University. Seeing them reflected throughout the curriculum and throughout the University as a whole is meaningful. Having loved my college experience, I find there is no better way to share that than to be an admission counselor. I am honored to represent DePaul University to prospective students.
