Dana Relyea, Grants & Contracts Accounting (Finance)
“We have been trying to resolve an issue for about five years, if not

her. Not only did she stop what she was doing to help me, she resolved
the issue and had the report ready within four days. She also offered
to help the dean’s office with a report. They currently do the report

beyond. She has helped many departments by solving this issue for us
and has created a report that works for all across the university.
