I really enjoy what I do. Each day I get to help others.
Michelle Seay, the administrative project assistant for CNA’s Health Research and Policy team, has more than ten years’ experience in providing office management and information-technology support, using her administrative skills to troubleshoot problems and assist her team members in a variety of ways.
“I’m a ‘Juliette of all Trades’,” Seay says. “If it’s in an office, I’ve probably done it. And, if I haven’t, I can learn quickly.”
Seay ensures that deadlines are met, proposals are submitted on time, and publications are presented properly. She evaluates processes and procedures in her department and works to make them more efficient. “I take care of many tasks that need to get done so that the analysts and scientists can focus on their research.”
Seay has provided support for a number of CNA projects including the National Background Check Program, the DC Homeland Security and Emergency Management Agency Exercise, and the Houston Catastrophic Planning Initiative. In addition, Seay was named IPR quality management SharePoint developer for her work managing CNA’s SharePoint site, a collaboration tool that allows users to share, edit, and manage documents and projects.
Juggling myriad projects and tasks, she thrives on the fast-paced nature of her job and says she finds the day-to-day responsibilities of her work the most rewarding. “I really enjoy what I do. Each day I get to help others.”
