What’s your favorite part about being at UNC Charlotte? What about your favorite part of the job?
My favorite part about being at UNC Charlotte is the feeling of family. In my three years here, I have been blessed to have met incredible people with whom I have been able to form close bonds. My favorite part of the job is being creative in my instructional design and working with departments and individuals who are open to that creativity fostering a positive learning experience.
What’s something about your job that most people don’t know?
Most people/departments on campus do not know that the OneIT Training and Development Department offers consultative and project management services outside of OneIT. My team has the skill set to assist other campus departments with training needs assessments and training implementation services related to new and upgraded systems.
What is something you’re most excited about for the fall semester?
I am excited about the ongoing training partnership and implementation efforts of Niner Research and the new Academic Suspension Appeals Tool initiative.
When you’re not on campus, what are some things you do in your free time?
I am a homebody and family-oriented. I enjoy spending time with my children cooking, baking and making new memories.
What’s a place on campus you think every student should visit?
I think every student should visit the Botanical Gardens. It is a serene and beautiful place I find myself visiting often.
What piece of advice would you give to a new student?
I would encourage a new student to be the source of what they hope to attract in life. The decisions made now will manifest the type of person they will be in the future. Make an impact!
