Associate Director, University at Albany
Grant Administration, Procurement, Accounts Payable
Mentoring: Kara O'Donnell, SUNY Upstate
Why I want to be a Mentor:
"I was in the leadership academy and I got a lot of benefit from my mentor. I would like the opportunity to give back. I also think I will learn as much or maybe more by being a mentor."
"I played Division 1 basketball in college. I love sports and being active with my family. I have 2 daughters, age 1 and 3. I have a 160 year old house. I don't think I meant restoration to become a hobby but it has and I enjoy doing work on the house and learning to be handy."
"I look to all my direct reports to be motivated to take the next steps in their careers and develop professionally. I see it as my role to facilitate that development, contribute to that development, advocate on their behalf, and also lead by example by participating in programs like this."
Commitment to Diversity:
"I lead a very talented, very diverse team of individuals from all backgrounds. The diversity of this unit is one of its core strengths. Unique insights, experiences allow us to come to optimal solutions in administering grants at UA, a very diverse campus."
