I am the “other” part time receptionist for the University Marketing and Communications Department.  I received an email from Karen Daubert, PhD, Assistant Vice Chancellor for Administration and Strategic Partnerships, asking if I was interested in returning to work part time for Washington University.  It was on July 29, 2021, in the middle of the pandemic and I was going stir crazy staying home.  Of course, I said YES, I interviewed and as they say, the rest is history. 

I had worked for Washington University School of Medicine from 1999 to 2017 in cardiothoracic surgery and neurology.  I was a medical secretary, office manager, research data coordinator and an administrative coordinator.  I have always felt blessed to have worked for Washington University and I was excited to return.  I love working part time and everyone here is so kind. 

Tom and I have been married for 49 years and we have 6 children and 12 grandchildren.  We have a busy and fun life!  Well, most of the time it’s fun.
