In October I will have worked for Salt Lake Community College for 24 years. I love working for the College. When asked what has kept me at the College for 24 years my answer is the culture and the community here at the College. My years of experience include working for the Site Administrator and the Academic Coordinator at South City Campus, from there I spent 13 years in Human Resources, followed by a few years in Cashiering. I currently work as a Manager in Risk Management. While in HR I was fortunate enough to take advantage of the opportunity of staff development leave to finish my BS in Business Administration. I would love to serve the College community in a position where I can help promote unity, collaboration and professional growth for our employees. I am outspoken and would be honored to help address problems and concerns of our Staff Association community. Thank you for the opportunity to be considered to serve as a Redwood Campus Delegate-Elect.

I am grateful for this opportunity. As of July, I will have been with Salt Lake Community College for 3 years and have loved every minute. My position is in the Health Sciences Admissions office on the Jordan campus. I have served on the Jordan Staff AssociationBoard almost the entire time. It has been my pleasure to serve with amazing people who have taught me all the ins and outs of how the Staff Association Board functions and serves faculty and staff. I have been involved in many activities and have enjoyed socializing and getting to know other people on our campus. Making them feel welcome and appreciated has been pleasure to be involved with. I love planning events and activities and know that with all the COVID 19 issues it has been hard and we all need to feel included and connected. As part of the committee, that will be our #1 goal as we slowly come back to campus and things return to semi-normal. Staff Association will be more important than ever to help us all connect. I would be grateful to be the Delegate- Elect and continue to serve as we move on in the future. Thank you again for this opportunity!!
