Loves to read and knit at the same time.

Favorite place on the planet: snorkling in Virgin Gorda.

Live and Learn

I am a native Hoosier, but I love to travel - London is my favorite city, and I was lucky enough to live in Germany for three years. Yellowstone is my new favorite National Park.

I rescue German Shorthaired Pointers for the breed club, and currently have two old boys - Brewster and Teddy

I love music: play the violin (though my arthritic shoulders don't like it anymore) and sing in my church choir

Addicted to reading - these days primarily history and biography


Gail Williamson

Director of Professional Development

Live and learn.

I enjoy hiking in our National Parks.  I have visited Zion, Bryce Canyon, Crater Lake, Mount Ranier, Yellowstone, Grand Tetons, Yosemite, Sequoia, Redwood, Olympic and several more. My top favorite is Glacier.  My goal is to visit every National Park during my lifetime. 

I like to read in my spare time - when I have any!  I am a James Patterson fan and have read nearly everybook he has written - I am especially fond of the Murder Club and Private series.  I also like the Jefferson Bass Body Farm novels that are based on forensic anthropology. In addition, I enjoy live theatre and regularly attend the IRT.  My favorite past production was Shirley Valentine played by the revered Priscilla Lindsey.

Cats are my preferred kind of pet.  Until the last few years, I had two cats - Pingo (black and white tuxedo) and QT (maine coon/tabby) that lived for almost 20 years.  Their personalities were more dog-like - they sat and begged on command and played fetch.

The multi-tasker

By day, I'm a professional trying hard to do a good job to promote IUPUI. By night, I'm a student in the master's program for Organizational Leadership and Supervision. I daydream about living in a beach house in Daytona with my husband. I have three children, five grandchildren, one dog, and two cats. I love to garden (flowers), and I'm an audiobook junkie. In my spare time (what's that?), I crochet. I'm a Christian which defines who I am.

Don't touch the corner piece of cake -- all of them are MINE! 

I'm on Level 833 of Candy Crush.

My lifelong (non-realistic) dream has been to visit the Great Pyramids and put my hand on a block of stone, which suddenly moves opening up an undiscovered tomb.

I like technology gadgets. An iPad Pro would be a great Christmas present. It has a really cool pencil.

I can tell you what happens in all of the Brady Bunch episodes.

I keep a list of every book I read every year. Favorite authors: Stephen King, Stuart Woods, Janet Evanovich, Lillian Jackson Braun

Keep at it and you will succeed


Anything computer related, from the basic word processor to full office networked integration and security.

Fun stuff:

I have also lived in Minnesota and Michigan

Own a dachshund - very lively and full of excitement

Met Jay Leno at a McDonalds in Las Vegas

All you need is love. - John Lennon and Paul McCartney

My husband and I are “owned” by two miniature Schnauzers; Hollie and Bella.  We are passionate about animal rescue, especially dogs.  I adopted my first schnauzer “Jasper” from the Humane Society of Indianapolis in 1999 and that was the beginning of my love affair with the breed.  Schnauzers are like potato chips, you can’t have just one!  I volunteer for an Indianapolis based schnauzer rescue group and have adopted my last four dogs from the group. 

I have two daughters and Randy has two sons.  We blended our families in 2009 and between us we have nine grandchildren that are our pride and joy.

We enjoy gardening, landscaping, any occasion to dig in the dirt!  I love music, traveling and antiquing.  My favorite “non-contact” sport is shopping.  You may not think of shopping as a sport, but it is the way I do it!

Go big or go home.

I have two dogs, both Australian sheltie and border collie mixes, and a hedgehog named Sonic.

I've camped in Italy (Rome, Florence, and Sicily) for two weeks all while 5 months pregnant.

If you're always trying to be normal, you will never know how amazing you can be. –Maya Angelou

After 9 adventurous years in Seattle, I’ve returned to Indianapolis to be closer to family. I received my M.P.A. in Nonprofit Management from Indiana University-Bloomington, and simultaneously worked as a graduate assistant academic advisor at IUPUI’s University College. When not at work, you can find me checking out the latest and greatest restaurants; volunteering at local beer festivals; enjoying concerts and theatre performances; cheering on the Indianapolis Indians and Indiana Fever; taking road trips and traveling; and spending time with my family (especially my beautiful nephew).

When you know better, do better. - Maya Angelou

When not chained to her desk, Christy enjoys biking and traveling.  She's been a Girl Scout troop leader for seven years and a lector in the Catholic Church for over twenty-five years. At IUPUI, she serves on the steering committee for the LGBT Faculty Staff Council.  She is a passionate social justice advocate and believes that we must continue to fight until everyone in this country has equal rights and protections and everyone around the world has access to clean water, food, and education.  The rest of the time you can find her reading a book.

Change begins at the end of your comfort zone.

Hi, I'm Biannca, and I've spent the majority of my career in higher ed with the Office of Faculty Appointments and Advancement, managing hiring processes and procedures across 17 schools and over 200 departments. 

I began my career at IUPUI in September 2002 where I also earned my Bachelor's degree in 2010. I am currently studying to receive my Master's in Technology from IUPUI in 2017. 

When I'm not writing a research paper, reading a book, taking a nap or playing referee between my two very competitive sons, you can find me curled up on the couch, catching up on my favorite shows such as The First 48, Dateline and 20/20 on my DVR. 

I love to travel and would love to visit the Seychelles someday. I love cheese - (almost) everything tastes better with cheese. 

Finally, I love my job; however, if I weren't doing what I do now, I'd be a medical examiner, a flight attendant or a news broadcaster.  



The best is yet to come

I one day want to become a high school teacher. I have always enjoyed watching people grow and learn and just wanted to turn that into a career! 

I’m still totally in love with IUPUI. All of my friends, classes, and work are here on campus. I’m a part of a really amazing sorority on campus called ASA and also a part of a bible study here. I will always show love to my fellow jags. 

I am a self-taught knitter. Last year I decided to teach myself how to knit, lots of YouTube tutorials, and within a month or two turned out like at least 10 scarves. I could only do scarves and I don’t know if I can still knit, because I don’t remember how to start or finish it, but there for a while I was pretty amazing.
