Wallisch, Hannah M

Hannah - THANK YOU for EVERYTHING you do for not only our office, but the entire University. You are truly a gem to this institution and I am beyond thankful to be able to work with you. Every time I have a question and I am not sure who can answer it, you always know the answer or at least know who to direct me to get the answer. Your professionalism, your calm demeanor, and your big heart are unmatched. I just wanted to say THANK YOU for always being willing to help and assist when needed, even when it is not part of your job. I appreciate you more than you know.
