I Am West Georgia
Years at UWG: Nine years.
My job title: Mail Services Supervisor.
What I really do: Supervise the mail room operations. That includes incoming mail, interoffice mail, outgoing mail, window services and sales, departmental postage charge backs, the budget and my employees.
Family: My husband, Mike, and I will be married 24 years this month. We have a daughter, Megan, who’s sixteen.
People describe me as: Friendly, I would hope.
My favorite things to do: Reading, walking and spending time with my family.
My proudest accomplishment: My daughter.
My passion: Just living.
My pet peeve: People who complain all the time.
Before UWG, I: Worked at the Carrollton Post Office for more than four years. Prior to that, I worked for Southern Therapy Services. I also worked for the Department of the Army for 10 years.
I joined UWG because: I wanted a job with set hours, so I could spend more time with my family. Also, I enjoyed working with mail.
I stay because: I love it here ... the students, the faculty and the staff. It’s just a great place to work.
One thing I would change about UWG: A four-day-work week and three-day weekend. I love my job but love my weekends more.
The best advice I ever received: Don’t let the small things bother you.
The best advice I’d give to new faculty and staff: Do your job to the best of your ability and don’t worry about what others are doing.
When I was a child, I wanted to be: A teacher.
Most people don't know that: Would you believe I use to be shy and insecure?
My favorite quotation: Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.
The book I think everyone should read: The Bible.
The movie I think everyone should watch: I can think of several but the first one that comes to mind is “It’s a Wonderful Life.”
My favorite memory: Any memory of my Grandpa Bradbary. He was my favorite person.
What I would most like to have if castaway on an island: A boat to rescue me.
What I would do if I won the lottery: I don’t play.
What I most want to contribute to students: Whereever life leads you, make the most out of it!
Although you didn’t ask, I’d like to tell you anyway: Life is too short. Live every minute like it is your last.
