Data Entry Clerk, Business Office

What is your current role in the Department of Biology?

I’m a Data Entry Clerk in the Business Office. I dabble in supply ordering and
reimbursements as well.

How would you describe our department and the people you work with?

Biology is the best! I love the people I work with. It is amazing to work in a place that genuinely cares about you, your interests, and your well-being. I feel very blessed to work at the U of R, and the biology dept is the cherry on top!

What do you enjoy most about working here at the U of R?

Definitely the people! Everyone is so kind and welcoming!

How do you unwind when you’re not in the office?

I absolutely love to cook! I practically live on Pinterest and I love to try new recipes. I got married last summer and we got so many cooking gadgets from our registry. I’m loving the experimentation!

What is one thing about yourself that you’d like more people to know?

I’m a Type 1 Diabetic. I was diagnosed just before my 5th birthday. I had one of the very first insulin pumps. I now have the latest technology and wear a CGM monitor also.
