I joined Staff Senate because after being at Mason for 10 years I decided it was time to help all of our staff not only have an individual voice on campus, but a collective voice.

My hope is that I can serve as a voice for our staff to ensure that the staff’s role is valued just as much as our student and faculty voices.
