Staff Senate will be doing a “Meet the Senator” series this academic year, letting all staff know who their Staff Senators are. In the spotlight this week is Jenn Lohse.
Jenn is an IT Director in the Project Management Office and this is her second year on Staff Senate. When Jenn was asked “Why Western?” She responded with “When my husband and I relocated to this part of the country (from Minnesota) my current position opened up at Western. I met, interviewed, and took a tour around campus and that was all she wrote. I fell in love with the environment and knew that Western was a community I wanted to join.” Her favorite part about her job is the interaction she gets to have with other divisions on campus. She loves seeing IT as a strategic partner to help get things done! Some fun facts about Jenn are that she was a keeper of bees in Minnesota, a golfing fool anywhere and a participant of 1/2 Ironman races. We are glad to have Jenn on Staff Senate and look forward to working with her more in the future.
