"Her work is exemplary. She sets high expectations and meets them, and is a team leader who promotes quality discussion on every project," writes one nominator. "I have rarely seen a worker who is so diligent about ensuring that her work output is of the highest quality. She always strives to provide excellent customer service to all, including faculty, staff and students."

"The University of Wyoming is the perfect place for employees to take advantage of every opportunity to better themselves, both personally and professionally. I thoroughly enjoy working with the faculty, staff and students, and look forward to many more years."
