This month, the Divison of Student Affairs is proud to recognize staff member Patty O'Donovan:
Patty O'Donovan joined the University of Hartford community in 1998. She has shared her many talents, positive attitude, outstanding work ethic, and caring nature in various roles within the Bursar's Office, the Barney School of Business, the Provost's Office, a shared position for the Center for Reading and Writing and Learning Plus, and since September, 2014, a full time position as the Administrative Secretary for Learning Plus. Students, faculty, and staff will attest to Patty's boundless acts of kindness, her enthusiasm for life, her wonderful sense of humor, and her compassion for all. Patty is dependable, resourceful, and responsible. She's a creative "problem solver" who sees no task as being too great or too small to conquer!
Patty takes pride in the outstanding accomplishments of her 3 children, Jordyn, Ryan, and Sean, all of whom are University of Hartford alumni. Now that her children are grown, Patty herself has decided to further her education at the University of Hartford. Therefore, long days at work are followed by long nights studying!
It's important to note that Patty has developed an expertise in working with and advocating for individuals who have disabilities through a combination of many years of experience working with individuals who have disabilities and her ongoing engagement in accessibility-related professional development. Not only does Patty help students understand their strengths but she also helps them access the accommodations necessary to realize their true, authentic potential.
Patty does it all … and with a smile and with grace. The University of Hartford community is truly blessed to be able to count Patty O'Donovan as a team member. It is easy to see why Patty is so deserving of the Student Affairs Caring Staff Member of the Month Award. Thank you, Patty!
