The winner of Mason’s Employee of the Month for March is Annie Lonetti of the Administration of Justice Program.

Name: Anna Marie (Annie) Lonetti

Hometown: Blairsville, Pa.

Current position: Administrative Assistant in the Administration of Justice Program

What she does: “As administrative assistant, I process travel [-related documents], work with accounts payable documents, human resources entries and adjunct contracts, and I supervise both classified employees and wage employees in the department.”

What she enjoys most about her job: “Working with the faculty and staff in our program. The working environment is very congenial.”

What she did before coming to Mason: “I was a machine lab supervisor for Nu-Kote International, where I tested copiers and printers for 10 years. I have been at Mason for seven years.”

Most memorable Mason moment: “When it was recently announced by the Board of Visitors that Administration of Justice will become its own department on July 1. We’ve grown to the point that we get our own department.”

What she does in her spare time: “I like to play the piano; I also enjoy fishing, and spending time with my granddaughters, Isabel, 3, and Abby, 2.”

What others say about her:

“It is no exaggeration to say that we could not maintain the high quality of our unit without Annie’s help. All of us depend on her heavily and have the utmost respect and admiration for her work.”

–Professor Jon Gould, acting director and associate professor, Administration of Justice Program

“Her efforts to answer questions regarding ADJ orientation, advising and recruiting efforts and to support faculty advising students were continuously exceptional during the three years I worked in the College of Arts and Sciences. She was always responsive, courteous and cooperative.”

–Mary Zamon, assistant director, Office of Institutional Assessment

“I’m new to the George Mason family, and I must say, without Annie’s help, I doubt if my transition would have been so smooth. She has worked tirelessly for the department, and shows a level of care and professionalism that makes coming into work enjoyable. I count Annie as both a friend and colleague and it is wonderful to have such an individual in our department.”

–Professor Cynthia Lum, assistant professor, Administration of Justice
