In each issue of our ITS newsletter, we feature one of our amazing ITS team members. We learn more about Angie Brooks with ITS Admin team in this segment.
What is your role and how long have you been in ITS at UTHSC? I started at the University 15 years ago as a Senior Budget Clerk in the Department of Physiology. I’m now enjoying my new role as the Financial Coordinator in the Information Technology Services Department for the past year and 8 months.
What is a day in the life of Angie like? Multi-tasking is the main goal in my office. The IT Department services our campus in every aspect; therefore, it is my job to ensure all billing is procured in a timely manner.
What is your favorite thing about working at UTHSC? It’s the diversity for me. Since my tenure here at the University, I have acquired so many lasting friendships. I’ve learned so much over the years about other ethnic ways of life, however, in comparison, there is always one thing that all ethnic values the most. Family!
What’s something most people don’t know about you? I love to crack jokes whenever I can. Laughter makes the heart grow fonder. I have an Event Planning Business, and would you believe that I’m a Pastor’s Wife? Thirty years and counting. I couldn’t turn back now if I wanted to. Did that make you laugh? Oh, one more thing. My favorite word is, wait for it, “KIND.”
