Financial Administrator 2
Office: Ward 8-292
What is your educational background?
I have an Associate Degree in Business Administration with Hospitality.
Tell us about your professional background.
I have 30 years of experience in administrative management. I have worked at Northwestern University for 20 years, first as an Accounting Assistant in the Molecular Biology Department, next as a Financial Assistant then Accounting Supervisor in the Department of Cell and Molecular Biology. Currently, I am Financial Administrator 2 in the Basic Science Administration.
What is your role in the Basic Science Administration?
I support the financial operations of the Basic Science Administration and I ensure the efficient, effective, and compliant completion of tasks related to the budget, payroll, financial transactions, and processing of statements and reports.
What is your favorite part of the job?
I enjoy assisting the faculty, students and staff with NU Travel Policy and Purchasing questions and how to process a request in an area they may not know where to find the resources. Thanks to my years of experience here at NU, this is a strong ability I have and usually have no problem finding the answers for the faculty.
What are your hobbies/extra-curricular interests?
I enjoy reading. I am the President of a book club, Dedicated Sistah Book Club, established in 2004. I also enjoy walking, something I’ve made a happen of doing here at NU on the track across from the Ward building.
