What do you do here?

I'm the Facilities Coordinator & Executive Assistant for the St. Paul Administrative Support Cluster and Cedar Creek Ecosystem Science Reserve.

How long have you been at the U? 

Four years — I was previously a student at the University of Minnesota, Morris where I worked in the alumni relations department. I also worked in the Department of Aerospace Engineering and Mechanics before joining the St. Paul Admin Support Cluster.

Can you describe your position a bit? 

I handle day-to-day facilities tasks and projects for the departments of Ecology, Evolution and Behavior and Plant Biology, as well as the BioTechnology Institute. My position is a 50/50 split appointment, so I also provide administrative assistance to Cedar Creek Ecosystem Science Reserve. I am primarily on the St. Paul campus during the winter and at Cedar Creek during the Summer.

How did you get into this field? 

I built my own major in Event Management as an undergraduate and discovered my desire for facilities once in my current role. I really enjoy working with others and tackling different tasks everyday.

What is something interesting or unusual about your work here? 

I feel the most interesting aspect about my job is my 50/50 split position. It allows to me to work in so many different areas and get a change of scenery.

What do you like to do in your free time? 

I love to travel and make music. I'm hoping to get a cuddly friend in the near future to enjoy my time at home, though.
