The College of Pharmacy recognized Leighsan Dougherty as the recipient of the College’s Staff Appreciation Program for October-December 2020! Leighsan serves as the Program Coordinator for the Office of Experiential Education.
Here some of the comments provided in Leigshan’s nominations
- Leighsan has a positive attitude and is always willing to help.
- She is super organized and makes our office run MORE smoothly.
- She is always helpful to students and preceptors alike! We’re so lucky to have her!
- Leighsan is always eager to help. She is innovative and offers creative solutions to longstanding problems. She had about 1-month of in-person training prior to COVID but that didn’t stop her from maximizing her role and responsibilities in the office. I have been able to give her tremendous responsibility, and she accepts it and improves the process. We are blessed to have her in the office.
- Her strengths have already been identified by others in the Dean’s office. I have encouraged her to take on roles outside of the Experiential Office and she has done so. She defaults to yes, even in difficult times. She is always positive.
- Her taking over affiliation agreements in a year where we had to renew ALL non-expiring agreements was a huge undertaking. She has developed a system and I trust her completely to keep up with all AAs.
- She is always available. She works independently with the OEE faculty and students, in addition to working as a team member.
- Leighsan has been a Godsend. She has developed policies and procedures from scratch. She has helped tremendously in the self-study process. She helps manage our APPE students. She has helped with POLA, Career Fair (virtual), Rotations Fair (virtual), and being sure our office has the connection technology in place to get your work done. Her skill set is perfect for our office.
- Very helpful with our office staff as well as preceptors from around the state.
- She is very organized and consistently looks for ways to improve processes.
- Leighsan is a wonderful co-worker and she definitely deserves to win this. She works with way more people from around the state (100+ pharmacy preceptors) than probably most others.
