Anita supports three areas of the SOE: the Office of Development and Alumni Relations, the Office of Communications, and the Michigan Alternate Route to Certification (M-ARC) program. In her work with the development and communications teams, Anita manages a number of processes including receiving and acknowledging gifts, paying vendors, maintaining the donor and alumni database, assisting with events, and any number of tasks her colleagues throw her way. In her work with M-ARC, she manages program inquiries and enrollment, as well as assisting with organizational needs such as records and office management.
As a long-time member of the SOE community—previously holding positions in the school’s teacher preparation programs and the Office of Student Affairs—Anita is proud to be part of an organization that undertakes ambitious and meaningful projects, supports teachers, and actively works to solve real-world problems. She particularly admires the commitment of SOE faculty and staff who care deeply about, and invest in, each student.
Anita holds a bachelor’s degree from Calvin College, where she majored in English.
