A little Q & A...
Q. What is your title and in what department do you work?
A. I am the Program Assistant for the Training Program at Counseling and Consultation Service.
Q. What do you like most about working at Ohio State?
A. Ohio State is a fantastic place to work because of the support that’s given to employees. Faculty and staff are given countless opportunities to thrive, and the pride that students and staff have in the university is palatable on campus. With great benefits and encouragement for continuing education and professional development, ongoing support to pursue career advancements, and an infectiously positive campus atmosphere, there’s always something to be thankful for as an OSU employee. Even as a staff member, I feel like I am in an environment where my progress and my contributions actually matter and I feel completely supported to continue to seek growth opportunities on campus.
Q. How has ASFW helped your career development?
A. I’ve had a great start with ASFW. It feels really good to be a part of an organization that is specifically purposed to promote the success of women and I love that I can expect to feel uplifted and empowered by the events that we hold. Before joining ASFW, I didn’t realize how important it was to take a moment to actually connect with other women on campus. Something that seems like an obvious part of your day-to-day life is transformed into another meaning after joining ASFW. Aside from the personal growth, I now have the opportunity to interact with people I’d likely never meet otherwise, and I get to learn more about the nooks and crannies of Ohio State’s complex network of various departments and positions within departments that spark an interest or a personal reference for future growth in my career. I am so excited to continue on this path, and really appreciate this opportunity to familiarize myself with people outside the four walls of my building on campus.
Q. I'm happiest when...
A. I am happiest when I am relaxing with my dog and partner while playing a board game, taking a walk in Goodale Park, or having drinks on a restaurant’s patio in the Short North.
