Name: Paula Christie

Area of Study / Position Title: Asst. to The Chair / Office Manager

Why Chemistry? (What about it initially interested you, etc): I joined the chemistry department in 2009, it was quite a culture shock compared to managing the Physics office.  After many years of working for both departments, it is good to call Chemistry my home.
Research focus (in non-science terms) or basic job duties?: Duties include: Assist the Department Chair and manage the Chemistry office. 🙂

One thing you truly love about your job?: I love working with people that have a true passion for what they do.

One interesting / strange factoid about yourself: I grew up on a small farm in Crabtree Oregon (population ~300 ) we raised sheep, pigs, cattle, rabbit and had 15 farm cats at one time.
