Working in the University of Florida College of Fine Arts/School of Music/Band is a wonderful experience and I enjoy every day as a member of the School of Music. I am the go-to person if you need to schedule an appointment or need information about the UF Band.
I was a Senior Secretary in the College of Agriculture at UF and worked for the Associate Dean before working at the School of Music/Bands. I have over thirty years experience in finance, bookkeeping, payroll, customer service, secretarial duties, development and administration. Before relocating to Gainesville, I worked as the Executive Director of a successful Business Networking Club in Miami, Florida, Church Administrator and owned my owned printing business for over 27 years. In Miami I was involved in various charities, service organizations and community development.
I have completed the Pro3 series financial certification and have taken numerous classes earning many roles in PeopleSoft, that allows me do prepare for the office: SND forms, travel, accounts payable/receivable, budgets, monthly reconciliations, PCard purchases/payments, order placement, payroll and vouchering. In addition I compose correspondence for the band staff and perform all the secretarial and reception duties for the office. I also, work for the Marching Band and prepare financial reports for the University Athletic Association. I work closely with the Department of Continuing Education and I am involved with our four summer band camps, as administrator. I also, collect funds and administrate through our auxiliary the Alumni Band Weekend and Parents Day Weekend for the Marching Band.
I enjoy volunteering my time for charities, environmental causes and our community.
