Senior Administrative Assistant, Athletics

How long have you worked at UNT?

I have worked at UNT for 28 years, and have spent the last 23 years in Athletics.

What is your department and what does your position entail?

I am the Administrative Assistant to Athletic Compliance and Academics. Additionally, I am the department's Hourly Payroll Coordinator, which covers from start to finish hiring of all of our hourly student and work-study workers. I try to help out in any area of the department that might be in need of help, especially on game days.

What do you like about your position?

My daily interaction with the student-athletes and getting to know them on and off of the field or court.

What is your favorite place to eat on or around campus?

My favorite place to eat on campus is Avesta.

Tell us something about yourself!

I live in Ponder with my husband (married 35 years) and have a daughter and son (UNT graduate, 2014). I enjoy my yearly "road trips" with my kids to various out-of-town athletic events, my favorite being our bi-annual trip to the Southern Miss football game with a two-night layover in New Orleans! My favorite holiday is Christmas and my favorite season is Spring. I love storms and I am actually a trained storm spotter!
