For several years Trisha has worked as our School’s Administrative Support Coordinator. In addition to those duties, she has been a member of our Online Team since joining LER and has also had administrative responsibility for the curricular consultation process, a critical role supporting faculty efforts to create and revise our courses and curricula.

In her new role Trisha will continue to handle the curricular responsibilities; however, she will more fully engage as the primary contact for our LER undergraduate students. Her objective is to increase engagement with that group of students, and also generate online alumni support for LER well into the future. She will also continue to help administer the Study Tour classes that began with the course in Ireland this past Spring semester.

Trisha recently received a Masters degree in Higher Education through World Campus here at Penn State.  Before coming to our School Trisha gained a background in business, working for four years for Nittany Bank, the last two years as a branch manager. In that job she was actively involved in recruiting, selection, training and supervising staff. She also worked as a finance manager for a local car dealer. Those experiences allow her to bring a business perspective to the many issues that the School must address on a constant basis. Coupled with her expertise in higher education, Trisha is an invaluable asset to the School and its online programs.

For those who have worked with Trisha, you know her as that person who will step up to help. Her focus is always on what will best serve our students and School.
