Director of Data Management, University Advancement

How long have you worked at UNT?

I have worked for UNT for the past 5 years.

What department do you work in and what does your position entail?

I work for University Advancement in Data Management. We are the first stop for all UNT alumni and donor data information.

What do you like about your position?

I like that I get to work with people using technical skills. I get to work in real life situations handling the data and bringing both sides together through fundraising.

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

Viet Bites – I get the Bánh Mì sandwich.

If someone new came in and wanted to know something about UNT, what would you tell them?

I would tell them I am third-generation UNT alumnus. My grandmother got her degree from North Texas State Teacher College and my mom got her degree from North Texas State University.

Tell us something about you.

I quit my first position at UNT to live in a travel trailer for six months in Yellow Stone National Park before returning to Texas.
