Joined Mason in 2017.
I love working at Mason because we’re truly a university devoted to access and equity.
Joined the Staff Senate in 2022.
I joined the Staff Senate because as a fully remote employee working from California, I want to make sure that the needs and voices of all of Mason’s staff working worldwide are heard and represented by the Staff Senate.
I love Mason because it gives me an opportunity to network with lots of different people and also build relationships with other women who are balancing work and life.
I joined the Staff Senate because I believe a voice is only as powerful as one uses it and I am charged to use mine to help effect change and discuss the possibility of change for staff here at George Mason University.
Position: Administrative Assistant to the Director
Current Department: Division of Special Education and disAbility Research, CEHD
Joined Mason in: 2019
I love working at Mason because of the diversity of voices all working in their own way towards a common goal of continually advancing the university. At Mason, the whole is definitely greater than the sum of the parts!
I joined the Staff Senate because I wanted to broaden my knowledge of the workings of the institution, to advocate for my colleagues throughout the university, and to collaborate with other senators and others across the campuses to work for the benefit of the whole of Mason.
Current Department: Enterprise Collaboration, Information Technology Services
Joined Mason in February 2006
I love Mason because it enables the local community, current students, active employees, alumni, and retirees to engage with each other in meaningful ways. From the Ombudsman to the Board of Visitors, all of us are involved in a collective vision of the future.
I joined Staff Senate in 2020 because I want to make a larger difference at Mason.
Matthew is currently serving on the Staff Senate Events Committee.
Position Title: Presidential Communications Manager
Current Department: Office of University Branding
Joined Mason in 2013
I appreciate working at Mason because I admire the university’s dual ambition: To serve the many and not the few, while at the same time aspiring to become/remain one of the top research universities in the country.
Joined Staff Senate in 2017
I joined the Staff Senate because in conversations and at town hall-style events, I sometimes hear staff members say, in essence, that their commitment to Mason feels deeper than Mason’s commitment to them. I think there is a collective desire throughout Mason to support the lives and careers of staff members, but we can look for more and better ways to ensure that that is the case.
Preston serves as a co-chair of the Communications Committee and on the Staff Senate Executive Committee.
