- Financial Training and Communication
- IU Bloomington
Role at IU: This is one of those questions that is always difficult for me to answer. I’m involved in many projects and initiatives across Finance & Administration. From asynchronous training creation to policy and procedure review, I’ve had the opportunity to learn about many of the processes that keep IU running. My involvement in any of these boils down to one question: what is the best way to meet compliance requirements while also meeting (or ideally, exceeding!) the needs of end users? I collaborate with subject matter experts and end users to find the answer. Outside of policy and procedure, I manage a small team of Training & Communication Specialists who create training, documentation, and spread the word about changes that impact the daily tasks of faculty and staff.
Previous Positions at IU: I started my IU career in 2016 as administrative support in Financial Management Services (FMS for short, now named the Office of the University Controller, or UCO). A year later I moved into the FMS Training department. In 2019, my current department was created, and I’ve had a hand in leading it since its inception.
Degrees and Education: B.S. in Psychology with a minor in Business, Indiana University
IUBSC Motivations: My years as a member of the IU staff community have been my most formative. I’ve been fortunate to meet so many amazing people since joining the university, and I learn something new every day. I love that! IU has much to offer. So much, in fact, that it can be challenging to navigate all those offerings. IUBSC does a fantastic job highlighting available resources and offering opportunities to learn more about the work accomplished on Bloomington’s beautiful campus. I’m excited to collaborate with the rest of the IUBSC to make that process the best it can be.
