Janita Pierce

Payment Specialist, Accounts Payable

Congratulations to our December ‘Cats Caught Being awesome winner, Janita Pierce, who was nominated by Melanie Albrecht Peterson.

Melanie said, “Janita is always willing to help campus folks when they need assistance. She is part of our accounts payable team and she is one of the most patient people I have ever worked with. I have spent the last couple of months listening to her guide campus folks on the phone and she stands out as being a star! She always makes her self available to help others, even when it is busy, and she is always willing to train and guide users on the PCARD and Concur. Just last week she helped someone with a PCARD reconciliation over the phone that took her at least a half an hour. She patiently guided the person via TEAMS and was bale to give them one on one training via screen share. She went the extra mile when the person was struggling to navigate the software. Janita really went above and beyond to help this person and still made herself for additional follow up.”

Cats' Caught Being Awesome History
