There have also been a few recent changes to our group:
Patty Marbury joined the Finance Outreach & Compliance team as the Finance Training Lead. Patty has been with UVa for 15 years, first as an instructional designer with the Integrated System Project and then as the Learning and Development Manager for Systems and Technical Training with University Human Resources, in the Center for Leadership Excellence. Her background includes over 20 years of employee development experience with the federal government and at UVa. Her expertise and interests include instructional design, curriculum development, technical writing, facilitation, coaching, and leadership development. Patty has a Bachelor’s degree in Government and Politics from the University of Maryland, and a Master’s degree in Public Administration from the University of Baltimore.
In Finance Outreach and Compliance, our charge is to create a comprehensive training program for finance professionals at UVa, and Patty will be leading this effort. We are excited about creating a program that is engaging and provides training in the skills and knowledge necessary to effectively do the job at all levels, from entry-level to advanced. We also want the program to provide a structure that encourages career development and advancement among finance professionals. We look forward to working with you all to make this happen!
Brandon Barnhill, our Export Control analyst, left UVa July 31st to accept a position at Portland State. Although we are disappointed to lose Brandon, we wish him well in his new role, knowing this is a wonderful opportunity for him.
