Linda Price and VA-MD Vet Med Interim Dean Greg Daniel
Interim Dean Greg Daniel presents the September 2019 Staff Member of the Month award to Linda Price.

Linda Price

Administrative assistant
Department of Small Animal Clinical Sciences

Described as "patient and kind" and "amazingly supportive and encouraging" by one of her nominators, Linda wears many hats, "even delivering mail for some weeks while Pat was away!" Linda helps where help is needed and ensures that all deadlines are met, providing coverage when co-workers are on vacation.

Linda always listens, promptly responds to emails, answers tons of questions, is quick to help her co-workers, performs tasks quickly, and always adds humor to the workday. If something needs to be done, she's the first to offer to do it — and if she doesn't know how, she will figure it out. On top of many other duties, she covered the bulk of the work when the department's admin departed in early 2019. "If it wasn't for Linda, the small animal department would have been lacking in essential support for a number of months," said one of her nominators.
