How long have you been at SMCM?
I’ve been working for the College almost two years, but have been an active member of the SMCM community for almost seven years now. I attended St. Mary’s from 2006-2010 for undergrad, 2010-2011 for MAT, and have worked here since 2012.
What path led you to St. Mary’s?
I came here after a family friend told about the school. I regularly came back for alumni events, and found an opportunity to work and live in the area, with the help of my former adviser, Katy Arnett, at the end of 2011.
What do you do by day?
I field some calls to the IT Support Center, and do some Tier 1 troubleshooting, but my main responsibilities are administering the SMCM Course Evaluations, providing Blackboard and Google training, and writing support documentation for SMCM campus systems.
What do you do with your evenings/weekends?
Netflix is a crucial aspect of my evenings during the week, but I tend to go to beer tastings, art events,
and compete in bikeathons on the weekend.
What is your favorite off-campus lunch spot?
I will never say “no” to a Hot Ciabatta Mama from St. James Deli.
What would colleagues be surprised to find out about you?
My Lego collection takes up most of my walk-in closet.
What is the most interesting/surprising job you’ve ever had?
I used to be a manager at the Daily Grind.
