War Eagle! As of February 2013 I became part of the Auburn Family! I served in a large school district in Florida for over 25 years. When I saw an opportunity to come and work for Auburn University and move closer to my family, I couldn't pass it up! It is my honor to serve as the executive support assistant to the dean of the College of Sciences and Mathematics.

In my free time I enjoy spending time with friends, hiking, jogging, kayaking, knitting and reading. I have two children, Jason who lives in Atlanta with his wife and three boys, and my daughter, Cassie, who lives in Auburn with her husband and three children. I am excited and look forward to all that is in front of me both in Auburn and at Auburn University!

Before coming to Auburn University, I worked as the accountant and office administrator at a local construction company for over 21 years. I began working at Auburn University in 2003 in the Facilities Division, Project Construction Division. I have been at COSAM in the Dean’s Office since 2006 as academic administrative support specialist. My primary responsibility is controlling the B.A.S.I.S.® ET690 software system. This security system is used for scheduling the opening and closing of COSAM buildings, classrooms and the auditorium, as well as maintaining reservations for review sessions, exams, special programs, lectures, outreach programs and other events as requested. I am also the contact person for key requests, banner card swipe access and many other varied duties. Additionally, I assist the dean’s executive support assistant, as needed.

My husband and I live in Auburn and have two children and six grandchildren - three boys and three girls. I enjoy spending time with my grandchildren, family and friends. I attend Farmville Baptist Church where I sing in the choir and have played hand bells. I have a passion for sewing and was recently featured in the East Alabama Living magazine for my t-shirts quilts.

I joined the COSAM family in April 2004 when we were located on College Street in OD Smith Hall.

I had previously worked for 21 years at Auburn Bank in various positions and decided to leave mortgage lending operations to start a new career at Auburn University. I handle all the finances for the college, including balancing our large budget which consists of six departments: Administration, Biological Sciences, Chemistry and Bio-Chemistry, Geology and Geography, Mathematics and Statistics, and Physics.

My husband, Mike, and I have two boys, 26 and 22. I graduated from Auburn in 1982, and our 26-year-old son graduated from Auburn also, so we are big Auburn fans. I’m a member of AUMC and enjoy spending time with family and friends. I also enjoy all water sports on Lake Martin, beach and mountain trips, a little painting, and playing with my favorite pet, a four-pound Yorkie named Teddy Winston.

Hello! This wonderful opportunity was offered to me in 2006 and I happily and eagerly accepted the position to join the College of Sciences and Mathematics family. Before my acceptance, I spent 12 years working in human resources in the private sector.  Prior to that, I was an independent medical/life insurance agent. COSAM is a large college with seven departments and more than 270 full-time employees.

I was given the amazing opportunity to work at Auburn University in the College of Sciences and Mathematics in October 2012. I am the assistant in the Human Resources Office for the college’s seven departments. It's a wonderful job and family to work with! Prior to coming to Auburn, I worked as an accountant and human resources representative in the construction industry for eight years. I originally joined the Auburn family in 1997 as a student. I graduated in 2001 with an accounting degree and went on to earn a master's in business administration from Auburn University at Montgomery. I come from a long line of Auburn grads and even met my husband, Casey, at Auburn. We have two beautiful children and love to spend our time enjoying our family, friends and all the great city of Auburn and life has to offer.
