What is your job title?
Administrative Assistant II
How long have you been at MSU?
It will be 7 years in September.
Have you been a member of the APA the whole time?
Yes I have been a member of APA since day 1 on campus.
What department do you work in, and can you tell me a little bit about what you do?
I work for Broadcast Services which includes WKAR television and radio. I am the FO for the unit. I handle financial transactions, assist with travel for staff, invoice clients for underwriting and production service work, work with leadership in preparing our annual budget, assist in the preparation of financial reporting to the Corporation for Public Broadcasting, prepare the station’s annual EEO report and serve as the unit’s grant assistant for both pre and post award as well as reconciling our accounts each month.
What brought you to your job at MSU?
My background has been in commercial radio and television, but I grew up around MSU since my mom worked here for 47 years. When I saw the opportunity with WKAR come up, I felt like this was a logical next step that would allow me to use my experience and still allow me to add to my skills, as I had never worked for a public broadcaster.
What do you love about working at MSU?
I love the campus, it is gorgeous! I also appreciate the benefits that we have as staff at MSU and the endless opportunities that are available to us.
What do you like to do when you are not at work?
When I am not working, I enjoy painting, scrapbooking and making handmade cards. I also love to bake for my family!
