New Staff in RSP (7/27/17)
Due to retirements and other shifts in staffing, RSP has some new faces! Lori Miller, Kerri Robinson, Nancy Yuska, and Mary Chien have recently departed RSP and UNI. Kerri has departed RSP to pursue new opportunities, Lori accepted a leadership position in the Victim Services Support Unit at the Iowa Attorney General’s Office, and Nancy and Mary both retired after many years of service to UNI. Three of these four RSP position vacancies have been filled over the last few months, and we will be launching a search for Kerri’s pre-award position soon. Britta Sandberg began work this summer as the new PostAward Support Services Coordinator, Karen Bass is replacing Nancy Yuska as Account Clerk, and Donna Uhlenhopp is taking over Mary Chien’s responsibilities as Account Specialist. Please join us in welcoming Britta, Karen, and Donna to the RSP Postaward team!
