I currently serve as the Administrative Assistant to the to the Associate University Librarian for Learning and Teaching.
Over the past 13 years, I have held a series of Administrative Assistant positions for senior management in academia as well as both the retail and manufacturing industries. Before joining the Library, I was the Administrative Assistant to the Executive Vice President of Operations for Borders Group, Inc., headquarters of the now defunct Borders Books stores. In my role as an Administrative Assistant, I scheduled appointments and interviews, coordinated travel and departmental and company meetings, handled correspondence, ensured customer concerns were expeditiously handled by the appropriate department, and oversaw monthly expense reconciliation and reporting for regional, district and store management. I also provided advice on company standards and initiatives to the 2 Administrative Assistants for the company Zone Vice Presidents, through regular conference calls and communication.
I am currently the Administrative Assistant Senior for the AUL for Learning and Teaching. I also provided interim administrative support for the AUL for Budget and Planning and served as the interim Administrative Support Supervisor in the Dean’s office here at the Hatcher Graduate Library. I am part of the library’s team of administrative professionals who work collaboratively to provide high-quality results and consistent levels of support. In my four plus years with Library Administration, I have maintained multiple calendars and scheduled appointments, provided logistical support for candidate interviews, coordinated travel, meetings and events, completed monthly expense reconciliation in Concur, and provided back-up support for the Library Dean’s Executive Assistant. In October of 2014, I was asked to take on the interim role of Administrative Support Supervisor. As such, I managed the administrative team by encouraging them to utilize tools, make connections and collaborate with campus partners, and provide great customer service to the AULs that they support as well as library staff, students and patrons.
