Name: Bell Stark
Job Title: Academic HR Generalist
HR Team/Work Unit: Academic Shared Services

Why Nominated:
“It gives me great pleasure to nominate Bellamie Stark for Employee of the Month. Over the past several months, Bell has been a true team player, provides excellent customer service, and continues to have great work ethics. Bell helped cover the work of a generalist who left and continues to be a great resource for the new generalist when she started. Even with her busy workload, she provided training, volunteered to take on additional work through the transition, as well as volunteering for committee assignments. She always did so with a smile. I appreciate her positive attitude and wiliness to go the extra mile to help her colleagues and department clients. Bell is always asking what she can do to help and I appreciate her ongoing efforts. She is deserving of this award.”

What does Bell enjoy doing outside of work?
“Things I enjoy outside of work consist of catching a good baseball game, finding a good taco, and spending time with my family. I have recently found a new love of hiking and try to get out at least once a week. Time is a precious commodity for me right now as I am in the final semester of wrapping up my Masters in HR Management. So needless to say I will have more time on my hands in the near future to discover new hobbies and travel.”
