I love Mason because there’s an atmosphere of anticipation and moral when I walk into every space. We have a collective mission as a university to be inclusive and provide quality education to all students, and everyone gives their best efforts towards that goal.

I joined Staff Senate because I value representing others who may not be able to do it themselves. I strive to make every environment I work in better each day for the people that work so hard to make Mason a home.
Position Title: Presidential Communications Manager
Current Department: Office of Communications and Marketing
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.
