Staff Member of the Month: May 2022
Department of Small Animal Clinical Sciences
FROM DR. NATALIA GUERRERO
Linda is one of the most dedicated and hard-working members of this college. She is always willing to help anyone anytime with no hesitations. She volunteered to help Large Animal Clinical Sciences (LACS) with some tasks until they get a permanent assistant, and she does it with a smile on her face. Linda is a very valued member of the Small Animal Clinical Sciences (SACS) family, and we are very blessed with her! She deserves this recognition!
FROM JULIE ROSENBERGER
Linda Price puts 110% effort into everything that she does. For a long time, she supported both LACS and SACS, but recently has moved full-time to SACS. She wants to make sure she gives the utmost support to the faculty because she knows that they are pulled in multiple directions, and she wants to help them in any way possible. She also works with all of the Locums that come in and makes their time here as positive as possible. She is always respectful in all of her dealing with both locums and faculty, regardless of what she is asking for. She also goes above and beyond in helping her colleagues around the college, providing training and support to other admins in the college. She is very well versed in all things financial and is always willing to step in and help. When the admin in LACS was out for a long time, she stepped up and helped in any way that she was asked. I think she is a great asset for the college and especially the SACS department, and I never had any hesitation in asking her to do something.
FROM DR. MARTI LARSON

FROM DR. JEREMY HANSFORD
Linda Price is an invaluable member of the team. She does so much for everyone that I do not even know where to begin, and she does all of it with a smile on her face. I'm reasonably sure she takes on tasks that are not even technically hers, just to make it easier on everyone else. She truly is a staff member to be emulated and honored.
FROM KEELY ARBENZ-SMITH
When a new admin or research staff member arrives at Vet Med, Linda Price is the trainer of choice, as she has a vast amount of knowledge that is vital to the fiscal operations of the college. No matter how busy she is, she is consistently amazing, supportive, and encouraging. She is always adding humor to our days, and even now has a signature gif of choice to lighten stressful situations! I appreciate Linda's willingness to always help out and to go the extra mile for everyone -- at ALL levels! She even bakes cookies for our locums, faculty, and internal candidates! She gives us ALL the royal treatment! Linda is an invaluable member of our SACS/Vet Med team, and I don’t know what we would do without her!
FROM COURTNEY SNEAD
Linda is a dedicated employee and a huge asset to this college and has been for many years. The wealth of knowledge that she carries with her is invaluable, and she is always more than willing to help whomever she can in whatever way she can. Linda made herself available when I was new to my position to help make sure my transition and training went smoothly. She is always available to help me when I am in need, as well as the SACS department, in addition to other departments within the college. Linda is able to bring laughter to our workday, and whenever I need a pick-me-up, she is definitely one that I can count on! She goes above and beyond what her job expectations are, and she definitely deserves to have the recognition for all the work that she does.
