  1. How long have you been at UNCW? 24 years.
  2. Did you work in any other departments on campus before working for the Chancellor’s Office? Yes, I worked for 3 1/2 years in University Advancement, specifically as Assistant to the Executive Director of University Relations.
  3. What do you do in your current position? I serve as assistant secretary to the university Board of Trustees, managing board affairs. I am also the budget manager for the Office of the Chancellor.
  4. Do you have any funny stories to tell? We have had various species of visitors over the years here in the Chancellor’s office. On one occasion, we had a rodent run through the office and frighten all the ladies. Of course, the guys were missing in the action. On another occasion, we discovered missing fruit from
    our ever-popular fruit bowl. When the discovery came, it was an opossum with a vitamin C deficiency.
  5. Tell us something interesting about yourself. I guess you can say that I am a lifetime Seahawk. I have had the privilege of working with all four of the university’s chancellors. I’m a graduate of UNCW. I have had two family members retire from UNCW. My family has established an Endowed Scholarship in the memory of my mother-in-law, Rachel Freeman. Outside
    of my university work-life, I am a very competitive 4.0 tennis player.

  1. How long have you been at UNCW? I started working here in September 2004.
  2. Did you work in any other departments on campus before working for Internal Audit? Yes, when I started at UNCW I worked in Financial Systems and then as the Endowment Accountant before I came to Internal Audit.
  3. What is your favorite part of your job? I love meeting new people on campus and learning about other UNCW departments.
  4. What challenges do you face in your job? One of the biggest challenges is the pre-conceived idea about auditors that we are here to “catch what’s wrong” or point out mistakes. I like to think I am here to help our clients. Our department can be a great resource by assisting with new processes or evaluating existing items to help increase efficiency. I participate in consulting, committees and investigations in addition to routine audits.
  5. Do you have any funny stories to tell? Of course I do! But I am bound by a professional code of ethics to not share them.
  6. Tell us something interesting about yourself. I love to read and volunteer at the local public library. I started participating in 5K’s not too long ago and am training hard to be able to run the entire 3.2 miles by May.
