We asked her some questions about her new role, which begins July 31, 2017. Read her responses below.
“I want to thank the department for this opportunity, and I look forward to many years of dedicated work.”
What drew you to EPC?
After arriving at the university, I began my interaction with EPC the following January when I started classes toward my master’s in the department. This interaction with faculty, coupled with interaction with some of the staff members, made the decision to apply for this position an easy one. This department is full of vibrant, supportive individuals creating the synergy that drives the department toward excellence.
How do you feel about being chosen as the new administrative coordinator?
I am excited about partnering with the department to support faculty, staff, and students in EPC programs while continuing to grow professionally. As the new administrative coordinator, I hope to continue the exemplary level of work and dedication set by April Phillips. I am enthusiastic about diving in and discovering where I can contribute as she did.
What are you looking forward to?
I am most looking forward to integrating myself in the department, being impactful in its continued success, and discovering how I can lend my skills to enhancing excellent programs.
