Gael Carnes


Gael Carnes, M.A., is the Assistant to the Chair and the Online Coordinator for the Department of Public Administration. Majoring in literature, Gael has had a variety of jobs, including a four-year stint as a web editor, copy editor, writer, and “elf” for CNN Online.

Gael spends her spare moments reading, writing, listening to the Cubs in the summer, the Bears in the fall, painting or putzing around at festivals. Spontaneous in nature, she is rarely at a loss for words and always ready for a lark.  She posted this picture early in her UIS career, and while she looks older, she believes this captures the spirit that inhabits her office.
