Congratulations to Teresa Vadnais, January 2018 Employee of the Month!

Teresa Vadnais - Fiscal Specialist, Grant/Contract Accounting

Teresa Vadnais has worked in a number of key positions throughout CWU in BFA, CAH, CEPS and the Registrar’s Office.  Currently, she is employed as the Fiscal Specialist 1 in the Grant/Contract Accounting office and is a key support position for the entire COTS division in regards to their sponsored research efforts and activity.

In her current position, she has shown substantial evidence to be a very responsible and dedicated employee, going above and beyond others in the Fiscal Specialist 1 position category.  I am consistently impressed by both Teresa’s attitude and her work performance as they always exceed mine as well as the positions expectations.

Teresa’s interpersonal and communication skills have allowed her to develop productive working relationships with both the BFA staff as well as CWU’s faculty. Even during challenging interactions, she conducts herself with the utmost professionalism and respect.  She listens and follows direction well, tapping into her analytical skills to diagnose problems and devise viable solutions.  Above all, she is always thinking ahead, a trait that is rare to find.  Because of this, she has earned the right to work autonomously on her core work assignments and the respect of her colleagues.

She works well under pressure, remaining calm during busy fiscal periods such as CWU’s year-end close and times when there is substantial grant activity.

Teresa has been a very quick study in regards to learning and interpreting federal regulations (not an easy task), is an ambitious employee and a solid team player.  Every day she leads our department and sets an example of how to provide a high level of customer service to everyone, regardless of their title (student, staff, faculty or administrator).

I highly recommend, without reservation, Teresa for the CWU civil servant Employee of the Month.

She sets a high bar for all employees to follow and CWU is fortunate to have her.

Congratulations, Teresa!
