Program News- July 2019

Dear Colleagues,
 
Please join me in welcoming Lynne Harper to our Program as a new part-time student adviser and office assistant.  Of special note, Lynne is quite familiar with the work we do in our profession, as her dad was a funeral director!  We are very excited to have her join our team, and we look forward to holding a welcome reception when classes resume this Fall.  
 
Moving forward, Ashley Mishek will continue to work for us at 80% time, with her typical work days Monday - Thursday.  Lynne will typically be here on Fridays, but she will be working extra days over the summer when Ashley is out of the office on maternity leave (likely starting in late June).  Lynne and Ashley will share the same office space, located in A-275-3 Mayo Building.  Likewise, she and Ashley share the same telephone number and e-mail address:  612-624-6464 / e-mail "mortsci@umn.edu"
 
As always, please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions you may have.
 
Sincerely,
Michael LuBrant, PhD
 
Here's a short message of introduction from Lynne:
I am very pleased to be joining the Program of Mortuary Science team! I appreciate the warm welcome I have received so far and look forward to meeting all of you.  Although I now call the Midwest home, I grew up in Southern California where my father was a Funeral Director.  For many years I provided service to stockholders and customers of a small utility in Madison Wisconsin and more recently completed graduate studies in Non-Western Art and Material Culture, working with museums in Milwaukee.  Moving to The Cities to be closer to family, I am excited to dig into my role as the Program Assistant for the Program of Mortuary Science and to explore this great area of the Midwest.
