I am an Admin Services Manager at the Institute for Clinical and Translational Science. I have been on staff at the University of Iowa for 35 years, having served several terms on Staff Council. I am a member of the Human Resources Committee and UI Healthcare Committee. In addition, I have served on the Funded Retirement and Insurance Committee (FRIC), a charter committee, and have co-chaired FRIC since 2012.
Serving on Staff Council not only benefits the UI and your fellow staff members, it benefits you by opening your eyes to the rest of campus and is a great networking opportunity. It is as good of an experience as you want to make it. One of the most valuable experiences to me was serving as an at-large member on the Executive Committee.
