I am the newest member of the Press, and in my role as operations administrator, I work with all departments to help ensure the smooth functioning of our many business activities. I am also responsible for managing our various book prize programs and our academic conference exhibits. I received both my BA (legal studies) and MA (public administration) degrees from Pitt, and I have worked at the University for 27 years in various roles. I was lucky enough to participate in Semester-at-Sea voyages, as well as take students abroad each summer to Europe. In my spare time, I am the elected tax collector for the Borough of Castle Shannon. I also love to read, am very active in the Irish Community in Pittsburgh, and am a huge Pittsburgh sports fan.
