Outreach & Compliance: New Team Members

Jack Jensen joined the Finance Outreach & Compliance team as a Training and Development Specialist.  Jack has spent the past 14 years in Secondary Education, teaching math at Fork Union Military Academy and Monticello High School, and serving as the Distance Education teacher for Fluvanna County.  Prior to moving to Virginia and entering Education, Jack worked in the Chicago area.  He served as a Lab Manager for Sun Chemical Corporation and a New Products Development Specialist for Viskase Corporation.  Jack has a Bachelor’s degree in Physics from Nebraska Wesleyan University, and a Master’s degree in Business Administration from North Park University.

Danielle Hancock joined the Finance Outreach & Compliance team as a Training & Development Specialist in September.  Danielle is one of many Super Temp success stories. After completing the Super Temp training, Danielle spent the last year as the Fiscal Administrator for the Astronomy Department.  The knowledge that she gained from her work in the Integrated System will prove helpful as she takes over the Grants Accounting training among other responsibilities.   Prior to becoming a staff member at UVA, Danielle was a graduate student, earning an Education Specialist degree in Curriculum and Instruction from the Curry School of Education.  Danielle also holds a Bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education from the University of Pittsburgh and a Master’s degree in Early Childhood Literacy from Wilkes University. 

Erika Priddy joined our Finance Outreach & Compliance team in September as a Training and Development Specialist. Erika’s service in the US Air Force set her trajectory toward training and education.  After three years of ICBM Operations, she became an instructor and developer and ultimately served as the Chief of Weapons and Tactics Training.  But the upheaval of a military career was not for her.  Deciding to put down roots in Charlottesville, Erika spent three years as a contractor at The Judge Advocate General’s Legal Center and School (on North Grounds, across from the Law School) providing instructional design and technological support for the Army Paralegal Program of Instruction.  Erika is specifically interested in eLearning development and blended learning facilitation.  She has a Bachelor’s degree in Sociology from Miami University and is currently working on her Master’s degree in Higher, Adult, and Lifelong Education from Michigan State University.     

LaVerne Harris joined the Finance Outreach & Compliance team as an Export Analyst in September.  Her background includes over 25 years of export/import licensing and compliance experience within the defense electronic divisions of both Lockheed Martin and Raytheon Company.  In addition, LaVerne is a proud US Air Force veteran.  LaVerne’s export/import compliance experience will afford the Office of Export Controls the ability to increase export compliance assessments and training activities to both staff and faculty in support of various international activities. The Office of Export Compliance is located centrally within the Finance Outreach and Compliance office at Caruthers Hall.
