Vanessa has worked at CU for over 10 years, and currently serves as the Program Administrator for the Computer Science Post-Baccalaureate Online program. In her role she wears several hats, including working with prospective students, overseeing daily operations, reviewing curriculum, and developing processes that improve the experience of all those involved in the program.
When asked, Vanessa says her favorite part of working at CU is making connections with people on campus. Working with such a diverse group, all with their own talents and specialties, it's important to make sure that every person at CU feels how valued they are.
Her goal is to continue educating staff about all of the wonderful resources afforded to them as employees of CU Boulder. Whether that be online professional development tools and mental health counseling, to fun things like discounted Athletics tickets and free days at the various CU facilities.
When she's not B-cycling between meetings or answering student inquiries, she enjoys hiking, competing in triathlons, and asking if she can pet your dog.
