Office Associate in the Curriculum Management Office, Erin Beth Dower Charron, is not easily frazzled, despite the fact that after only a few months on the job, she was charged with scheduling rooms for classes, events and training sessions using new software.  She was able to juggle the complex system with ease, leading nominator India Ashley to say “she could easily get overwhelmed with the enormity of her role, but has not once appeared a bit frazzled by it all!” 

"In the Curriculum Management office, there is great respect for one another not only in professional esteem but in genuine support of one another."

 

Although Dower Charron is new to her current job in Curriculum Management, she has worked at the college for more than 10 years.  She loves her new job because “It’s interesting to know that just about every event on campus comes across my desk at one time or another.”

“My work is challenging, but not intimidating,” continues Dower Charron.  “In the Curriculum Management office, there is great respect for one another not only in professional esteem but in genuine support of one another.”

Those who know Erin Beth know her to be a cheerful and upbeat member of any team.  “She is always pleasant, smiling and eager to lend a hand to make sure events work for everyone,” says Ashley. “Erin Beth deals with the many room changes we have all the time.  She graciously makes the changes, communicates efficiently and timely with all parties, and keeps meticulous records of everything. She goes above and beyond to keep media services informed of our needs even when we forget.”
