Program/Project Specialist & Assistant to the Director

I work in the Communications and Organizational Support unit and assist our director. C+OS facilitates events, runs Minitex News, manages our social media channels, and creates and distributes reports and promotional materials for all of Minitex's services. We also provide comprehensive support to the Minitex staff and serve as their front-line customer service representatives.

Outside of work I love to hang out with my family; especially my 3 awesome grandsons and God children. I'm very passionate about genealogy, I've been doing this for about 10 years now. I enjoy reading when I can. My favorite authors are Dean Koontz and Tammi Hoag.
