What are your primary responsibilities?

I assist with event scheduling for campus faculty and staff as well as student groups. I oversee our office student workers, manage the budget and pay the bills. I also work on special projects as needed. A recent example is the new banners that hang behind the stage at Commencement.

Contact me if you are interested in…

Learning about spaces on campus and the booking process. I can also assist with rental needs and offer advice.

Why do you love what you do?

I love the interaction that my job gives me with all groups on campus. I have met people from every department as well as a large group of students. I enjoy helping others make their events a success. I also LOVE working next door to Blue II!

What is your favorite Butler memory?

I enjoyed watching the Final Four games at Hinkle Fieldhouse with my family and all of the fans. It was the next best thing to being at the game.
