SCHOOL OF BUSINESS ADMINISTRATION
Office Assistant III
Length of Service: 8 years
Employee of the Month for May 2013
Jenifer exemplifies all of the criteria established for this award. Initially Jenifer supported me in my role as faculty director of strategic business programs, but most recently (January 1, 2013) she has moved into the position of office assistant (I am now the department chair). Jen has consistently been one step ahead of me in helping to support me administratively. One of Jen's greatest strengths is her positive attitude and willingness to go above and beyond to get the job done. For example, she is always working toward improving her skills by taking advantage of training opportunities or taking on new job responsibilities as appropriate. While presenting clarity about her role as Clerical/Technical, she never pushes responsibilities back, but works toward expanding her role and proactively streamlining processes. When the office assistant opening became available, I was eager for Jen to apply and have been so pleased that she has moved into this new challenging responsibility.
Congratulations to Jenifer on her selection as the May 2013 Employee of the Month!
