Gratitude and Best Wishes to Deana Northern

Please join me in wishing Deana Northern farewell and good luck as she leaves the University at the end of this month to take on a new opportunity in Dayton, OH.  Deana’s last official working day will be Friday, 9/02.

In 2013, she started her career at Notre Dame under the fractional support group serving a variety of campus partners, including ACE, the Graduate School, Notre Dame Press, and ASSA. In 2015 she moved to an embedded role for Student Affairs and RecSports.  During that time, she was able to focus on more projects such as the implementation of Irish1Card, the RecSports move to Duncan Student Center along with leading the project to move the RecSports Fusion server to an AWS cloud solution. She also earned a Lean Sigma Six Green Belt for a project to revamp RecSports’ faculty access processes and procedures.  Currently, she is involved in various OIT groups and was chosen to be part of the MOR All Leads Program.

Deana joined the NDAA Team in early 2020 and brought a focus on improving our internal IT processes, including the implementation of Service Now for our myND Support Team, organizing and tracking our equipment purchases, and always ensuring that our IT infrastructure runs seamlessly whether handling payments at Football Fridays, automating the NDAA Board election, or processing Reunion check-in.  And most importantly, Deana built a knowledge base allowing us to repeat these successes in the future.

Deana’s dedication to the NDAA, her past campus partners, OIT, and University as a whole is outstanding, and she will definitely be missed.  Please join me in thanking Deana for her 10 years of dedication to the University and wishing her well in her future endeavors.
