Starting a new job can be incredibly difficult and challenging. It also can be rewarding and fulfilling. How well you cope depends on the attitude you bring on your very first day. I should know as I am the newest staff member in the Psychology Undergraduate office here at Michigan State University.
My background is in customer service, specifically receptionist type work. I enjoy being around people and helping out to the best of my ability. I look very forward to working with all of the students, staff and faculty here at MSU.
On my first day in the undergraduate office, I was nervous but everyone was very welcoming. I knew it would be difficult learning about the different components of work that they do in the advising office, but I came in ready to learn and excited to be able to converse with students.
My dream has always been to work for MSU as a life – long fan of the University both on and off the field. Three generations of my family have graduated from MSU and my Mom is a 32 year employee currently working in the College of Veterinary Medicine. I am proud to say that MSU is a family tradition that I am now lucky enough to be a part of.
I have been happily married for five years with two adorable children who are the light of my life. I hope my children will have the desire to further their education and they would attend Michigan State University as other members of my family had. As a family we love to go camping and canoeing.
I am overjoyed to be joining an already successful team and look forward to working and getting to know everyone here in the Department of Psychology. Please feel free to stop by and introduce yourself any time.
