“Whether it is learning about a faculty member’s research, talking to a student about their courses, or even meeting a visitor to the campus — it’s always interesting learning more about the people who are a part of USFSM”

Tell us about yourself!
I was born in Orlando and grew up in Bradenton. I have always been interested in the arts growing up. I’ve been involved in choir, ballroom dancing, and Mexican folkloric dancing. I still love singing and dancing, although it typically happens when I’m at home (with no one watching).
Walk us through an average workday at USFSM.
What I do in an average workday can vary significantly, but it ranges from the fiscal administration for the CSM (College of Science & Mathematics) accounts, HR processing, travel, and supporting the dean and faculty. With so many different aspects of the job, it boils down to juggling it all to meet the needs of CSM and the university.
What do you like most about your job?
Being an office manager requires a lot of organization and problem-solving skills. I love being challenged and finding the most efficient way to do something.
What’s the best thing about working at USFSM?
The diversity of the people that I work with and come across on campus. Whether it is learning about a faculty member’s research, talking to a student about their courses, or even meeting a visitor to the campus — it’s always interesting learning more about the people who are a part of USFSM.
Tell us about your dream vacation.
I have not done much traveling outside of Florida, so I’d like to go somewhere that’s vastly different, like Japan. I would love going to a cherry blossom festival, visiting Mount Fuji, and eating as much Japanese food as I can.
Best moment in your life so far?
Graduating from USFSM with my bachelor’s degree in Business Administration. Go Bulls!
