Senior Secretary, Accounting and Finance
Years at EMU
Why You Like Working Here
There are so many reasons, but mainly interacting with the faculty and students. I especially enjoy helping students learn the skills they need to be successful in their future careers through on-the-job training. It’s amazing to watch how much they grow personally and professionally.
Favorite EMU Moment
When I won the 2016 Outstanding Staff Award for the College of Business at the honors banquet. When Michael Tidwell presented it to me, I was completely surprised and felt honored to be chosen.
Challenge! When I think something cannot be done or I feel unable to do it, I push myself to do it anyway through hard work. I am a self-taught fitness instructor and recently created a pilates class I teach through the Ann Arbor Recreation and Education program.
After being born on the island of Malta, I became an American citizen in 1996 and I have lived in Michigan for 40 years. When I came to the U.S., I didn’t know any English. I learned through observation and listening. After raising four boys, I went to WCC and got my associate’s degree in administration.
