Name: Patricia (Patty) Theimer

Hometown: Evanstown, Pa.

Current position: Senior Fiscal Technician for Life Sciences at the Prince William Campus

Number of years at Mason: almost 6 years

What she does: Purchases lab equipment and supplies for Life Sciences faculty and staff

What She enjoys most about her job: “The people that I work with. I work with a great group of researchers and staff members. They are caring and they do great research. It’s exciting to come in and see what they’re all working on.”

What she did before coming to Mason: “I Worked for USA Today for 12 years making purchases for print sites.”

Most memorable Mason moment: “I can’t pinpoint one thing in particular because I enjoy working here so much. The overall experience has been wonderful.”

What she does in her spare time: “I love being with my family and spending time with friends. We like boating, water sports, biking and anything outdoors.”

Something people may not know about her: “Nothing – I’m pretty much an open book; what you see is what you get. We’re all so close here that it’s really like a family. We probably know everything there is to know about one another!”

What others say about her:

“Patty is an extraordinary contribution to the science unit at the Prince William Campus and to the service of Mason. She is dedicated, determined, motivated to the task, detail oriented, professional with high business acumen, hardworking, honest and effective. She has a proven track record.”

-Andrea Nikoi, administrative manager, Finance and Human Resources, Life Sciences

“The Center for Applied Proteomics and Molecular Medicine would not have functioned effectively as an entity without her help and above-and-beyond diligence over the past year, since our arrival. We are deeply indebted to her. She is an employee who selflessly gives of herself – in anonymity, to help others, and she exemplifies the attributes of honest, hard work.”

-Lance Liotta and Emmanuel Petricoin, directors, CAPMM

“The phrase that immediately springs to mind when I think of Patty is ‘uncompromising integrity,’ and it is this quality that I most admire and value in our work relationship. We, in Life Sciences, are truly fortunate to have Patty within our organization, and I, for one, am thankful on a daily basis to count her as a trusted ally, colleague and professional resource.”

-Daniel Cox, assistant professor, Department of Molecular and Microbiology
