Name: Meredith Hulley
Job title: Executive Assistant, Master of Science in Finance Program
Job duties: Coordinate program admissions (with the help of my awesome and incredibly capable co-worker, Vanessa Fontana), act as an International Services Office representative, function as academic advisor and basically answer any and all questions for current or incoming students.
Time at GW: I started as the MSF’s senior secretary in January 2010 and moved to my current position last July.
Best part of working at GWSB: The tuition benefits! (I’m getting my master’s in strategic public relations.) But really, I love meeting students from all over the world and helping them adjust to GW.
What co-workers do not know about me: I’m a huge New York Mets fan and for spring break of my third year of college, I drove to spring training by myself to follow the team around Florida and watch them play. I saw eight games in seven days, burned my skin to a lobster red, and had an absolute blast!
Family: My parents live in Clifton, Va. My dad is a retired naval aviator who now works at the Pentagon, and my mom works part-time. I have a sister who is an attorney in Alexandria and a brother who just graduated from VCU in Richmond.
Favorite things to do on the weekend: Read the travel section in The Washington Post and plan where I want to go on my next vacation.
Favorite vacation spots: I rarely go to the same place twice, but I love going to Charlottesville, Va., where I went to college.
Favorite book: Ever since I learned to read, I’ve read constantly, so I have lots of favorites. My all-time favorite is Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, but I also love The Dresden Files, Artemis Fowl and The Lord of the Rings.
