As the Faculty Administrative Services Supervisor, I support our Law School Professors, Deans, and Staff with a multitude of academic related assignments from basic to advanced levels of complexity.  I manage our department and delegate numerous projects to our talented, dedicated Administrative Assistants who perform clerical tasks such as composing and editing documents and law textbooks, organizing meetings, scheduling appointments, and completing financial reports with highly detailed accuracy. I possess excellent communication and organization skills which were developed from career related experience as an Administrative Assistant/Marketing Director in real estate, as a Customer Service Representative in printing, and as a Photo Editor in the publishing industry in a technical and deadline-driven environment. I am both PC and Macintosh proficient with skilled knowledge of Microsoft Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Publisher, Outlook, Adobe Acrobat, Photoshop, InDesign, Illustrator, PageMaker, Quark Xpress, Zoom and many other computer applications. My professional experience of more than 28 years includes: Marketing Director for Great Triangle Homes, Chapel Hill; Account Manager for A Better Image Printing, Durham; Shipping & Printing Services Manager for Vientos Tropicales – a Central American Law library, Durham; Senior Customer Consultant for Kinko’s Inc., RTP; Digital Darkroom Technician Supervisor for the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review, Pittsburgh; and Photojournalist for the Standard-Observer Newspaper, Irwin, PA.
