Length of service: 
35 years

I started with OSU in Int'l Research & Development as the Assistant to the Director, Assoc Director, and Asst Director.  After five years, I moved to The LaSells Stewart Center, where I was the Operations Manager, then Assistant to the Director, which included managing OSU Conference Services.  After 13 years, due to budget cuts, I moved to the Western Center for Community College Development in the College of Education, where I was the Asst to the Director, then Asst Director.  After nine years, the grant ended and I moved to the Research Office, where I am currently the Lead Assistant Grant and Contract Officer.  I married an OSU Alum have raised three children while here at OSU, and all three attended OSU!  OSU is a great institution and I've worked with and learned from many fine people.
