Tami Jackson, development and marketing coordinator, college of math and science
What is your background?
I was raised in Anchorage, Alaska. In 2007, my husband’s job transferred us to Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, where we lived for four years before transferring to Oklahoma. My professional background has been in office management and administrative support in various forms.
Tell me how you first got involved at UCO.
I started at UCO in late 2017, working for the Foundation. Although I had a wonderful group of colleagues, I wanted more challenge so transferred to the College of Fine Arts and Design. Most recently, I’ve accepted another challenging role in the College of Math and Science.
What would you say your strongest beliefs are about your contributions to the university?
I always want to be known for being kind and willing to help. I think my actual contributions will be leaving a well-structured path for others to follow. My legacy will be being known as a good co-worker with a positive attitude.
What do you do when you are not working?
I am working on finishing my degree, which fills up most of my free time. When I am not doing schoolwork or stressing about schoolwork, I spend time with my family. My sister and her kids have moved to Edmond recently, so I have really enjoyed showing her what I have learned to love about Oklahoma.
