What is your favorite part about working at CWRU?

The vibrancy and warmth of the campus community is such an incredible thing to be part of and that I continue to be thankful for each day.

What're you looking forward to in your new role?

I am looking forward to the opportunity to branch out and now support all of the departments under the CSE umbrella in times of need. I am also looking forward to the opportunity to focus on my passion area of research administration. We have such a great group of employees here at CSE and I am most of all much looking forward to interacting with all of them more regularly in this newly created role! I am a servant by nature and came to CWRU in 2019 for the opportunity to help others and at my alma mater (WSOM '07). I feel I will be able to do that in many new and exciting ways here. It is such an exciting time to be part of CSE Research Administration as we work alongside CWRU's Office of Research and Technology Management (ORTM) to streamline and standardize administrative processing.
