|Meet our Dean||Dean's Office Contacts||Administration Roster|
|Boards & Committees||Staff Member of the Month||Diversity Commitment|
Approximately 200 staff employees work at and support the Virginia-Maryland Regional College of Veterinary Medicine.
Each month, a deserving staff member is recognized for their exemplary job performance. As part of the honor, the selected employee receives eight hours of annual leave, a personalized front-row parking spot at the college for the month, and a certificate of recognition from Dean Cyril Clarke.
Individuals are peer-nominated and may only receive the recognition once per academic year. Faculty, staff and students can nominate a staff member by sending a completed nomination form to Rebekah Woodyard.
Amy Winemiller filled a new administrative position when she joined the college in April 2013. She quickly made her mark working a split appointment between alumni relations and referring practitioner relations. Her nominator noted, “Amy demonstrates outstanding organizational skills and is able to prioritize without oversight. She has a pleasant personality and a can-do attitude. If given a task, no follow-up is necessary.”
Winemiller strives to continually better herself by taking classes to develop office management skills. “She has suggested new ideas to assist with planning and organization for both continuing education and alumni events,” wrote her nominator. “As a result of her actions, tremendous gains have been made in both areas and have benefitted the college as a whole.”
Melissa Corley not only loves her job in small animal ICU, but she is a model ICU technician, according to her nominator. She takes online courses to continue to improve her emergency/critical care knowledge base and puts what she’s learned into practice. She frequently stays late when help is needed whether it is dealing with an emergent case, organizing medications, helping students, or tidying up.
Melissa is known as a team player and always has a positive attitude and smile on her face. Because of her engagement and interest in learning more, her supervisor has found that she can trust her assessments of in-hospital patients. "She’s always eager to hear why I might have assessed a patient differently and what she can do to improve," her nominator wrote. "Melissa has a great skill set upon which she is always building, and she works well with everyone."
