Title: Administrative Assistant III – Eau Claire Site

How long in your current position? How long at the school? Five years and 15 years with the UW-System.

What are the main reasons students, faculty, or staff would contact you for assistance?
I mostly communicate with faculty and staff about meeting requests, technical issues, copies, etc. Students will sometimes reach out with questions and if I can’t help them, I usually can point them in the right direction.

What’s one effective (or ineffective) strategy you’ve used to work remotely during Covid?
Working in my 3-season porch with lots of sunshine, fresh air and cats!

What’s a recent book, movie, tv show, podcast, or album (or other) you would recommend and why?
I don’t have a ton of time to read or watch TV. I have three kids in 100% virtual school and I am in graduate school as well. I do love listening to music while I run and my favorite album right now Sylvan Esso, Free Love.

Hobbies/other interests:
Running, traveling, boating, art, books, cats and yoga.
