I started at the Arnold Arboretum in October 1988 as a part-time receptionist. By 1992, I was working full-time in the Finance and Administration Department and have been ever since. My position has incorporated various duties over the years, including purchasing, payroll, mailroom, courier, and equipment management. As the Arboretum staff has grown in size, those functions have been largely altered and reassigned. As accounting associate, my role consists mainly of accounting and financial responsibilities, including accounts payable, accounts receivable, and procurement. I am also the primary contact for communicating Harvard University and Arnold Arboretum financial policies.
