Congratulations to Jessica Erwin, Madrid - Finance and Operations, who received a SLU Spark! Jessica was recognized by Victoria Villarreal, Madrid - Finance and Operations, for driving change and innovation.
"Although demonstrating curiosity is a good thing, not everyone is capable of going one step further. That is, demonstrating curiosity, learning more about something (what does it do?, what it is for?, who does it impact?, are there costs involved?, etc.) and later proposing new ideas to make the process more efficient, makes the action even more valuable. Those capable of doing this have the gift to be able to manage projects and get things done. In the time she has been working for the Madrid Campus, Jessica has proven to be one of these people. Constantly observing what is happening around us, she can point out flaws in a process faster than most and find ways to make it work. Her dedication as a true SLU Madrid Billiken also further contributes to complete a job in an efficient and timely manner. As a member of the SLU Madrid staff and as Assistant Director for Operations, Jessica is a perfect fit. She is enthusiastic, industrious, hard-working and always in the mood for positive change, a large 'spark' in a small campus."
