Would you like to share a little about your immediate family or family history? My great-grandparents were married for an entire lifetime-83 years.

How long have you been working at Georgia State University? I have been working at Georgia State for 2 years
What do you do on a typical day? I work in a high-secured area so my typical day involves: Escorting visitors to their designated areas, running errands, and processing departmental and sponsored-related travel authorizations, reimbursements, and invoices for faculty, staff, and students.
How do you think your job supports the university’s mission? I play a small part in the accounting areas of the university. When processing travel, invoices, and reimbursements I always make sure that I have the required documentation. Even though it is a small portion, it helps keep the university’s auditing and financial processes in good standing.
What is your background? I attended Georgia College & State University, where I received a Bachelor of Science Degree in Psychology.

We talk about current world events or funny things! We definitely laugh a lot and it makes coming to work so much easier when you have an atmosphere full of positivity, humor, and just plain fun!
What don’t people know about you? There is something so fascinating about the aging process. I love conversing with the baby-boomers of the world because they provide so much wisdom! I’m just so in love with them!
