Four School of Medicine employees were recognized this year by Larry J. Shapiro, M.D., executive vice chancellor for medical affairs and dean of the School of Medicine, for their outstanding contributions and exceptional commitment and dedication to the school.
Tina Grubbs, office coordinator for the Department of Surgery, and Marybeth Modesto, director of business operations for the Department of Medicine, each received the Dean’s Distinguished Service Award.
“Tina is one of the most dedicated and committed individuals that we have here at Washington University,” said Jamie Sauerburger, executive director of business affairs for the Department of Surgery, of Grubbs. “She is proud of where she works and proves every day that she is the front door to helping others understand what a great place this is in which we work and how fortunate we are to be here.”
Tammy Purington, special projects administrator in the Department of Medicine, said of Modesto: “Marybeth is a dedicated employee and stands above the rest. She has integrity, dependability and utmost knowledge of her role here at Washington University. She has taught her staff about dedication and striving to be the best and service oriented to others at the University.”
Jennifer Lackner, research administrator in the Department of Pathology and Immunology, received the Research Support Staff award. “Jennifer is the most responsible, effective and productive administrator I can imagine,” said Herbert W. “Skip” Virgin, M.D., Ph.D., the Edward Mallinckrodt Professor and chair of the Department of Pathology and Immunology. “She is remarkably organized and keeps me aware of all the things I need to do to get a grant submitted. Most important to me, she always works hard to shield me from unnecessary work and allows me to focus on the science.”
Sally A. Jansen, insurance/billing/coding assistant II in the Department of Medicine’s Division of Dermatology, received the Operations Staff Award. “Sally Jensen has repeatedly demonstrated an exceptional example for our employees to emulate,” said Leslie Pettet, business director in the Division of Dermatology. “Her efforts have been exemplary and serve as an important reminder of how fortunate we are to have Sally as a member of our team.”
