Last Month's Employee of the Month

Brittany is a student employee at the Reception Desk at the Student Fitness Center and has been since April of 2013. From the very beginning of her employment, Brittany has been a very loyal and dependable student employee. Her Major is Early Childhood Education and has a projected graduation date of May 2017. Her future goal is to be employed as a Preschool Teacher. We have no doubt that she will fulfill this position someday with no problem.

Brittany has a very unique friendly personality and does not know a stranger. She has a great rapport with all the Fitness Center patrons, as well as her fellow co-workers. She is very conscientious and takes her role and duties as a Reception Desk employee very seriously. She goes over and above her expected duties. If there is a last minute shift opening at the Reception Desk, Brittany has always filled in that position willingly and with no complaints. She is one of our hardest-working Front Desk employees!

Brittany also keeps busy outside of Campus Recreation, one of those activities is raising her 4-year-old son Drake, to whom she is very devoted. That is another reason she is so deserving of being Employee of the Month as she is able to juggle her most important duties as a single mom and still be a very dependable employee for us at the Front Desk. What little free time she has, she manages to keep in close contact with her Mother who also works on the SIUE campus and her sisters & brothers. Brittany is also very talented in arts & crafts.

As you can see, Brittany is a much deserving recipient of the January 2016 Campus Recreation Employee of the Month.
