I have been an administrative assistant with E&O since September 1999.  My work background is in administration and business.  Prior to coming to UCAR, I worked for a manufacturing company for 18 years where I started as a customer service representative and advanced to Domestic and International Customer Service Manager.  I am currently an Administrative Assistant III with EO.  I am responsible for assisting the EO team with travel requirements, purchasing of all types of equipment and software, managing EO sensitive property and fixed assets, assisting with grant proposals, and managing a number of funded grants.  I am also a member of the UCAR Safety Team.

I received a BS in Business Administration in 1977 and my MBA in 1980 from the University of Alabama in Huntsville.

My passion is my horses, which I have at my home and ride whenever possible. I also have 2 dogs and a cat.  I enjoy downhill skiing, camping and the outdoors.  I love to travel, both locally and internationally, and would love to be able to travel throughout the USA and explore it on horseback.
