After 17 years at Chapman University, I am excited and challenged every day to make processes and projects easier for our staff, faculty and students.  I have been involved with multiple implementations during my tenure here at Chapman; the most recent being our ERP implementation, integrating 3 main systems into People Soft over the last 4 years.  We have been live on version 9.2 HCM and 9.2 Finance since 2014 and 9.0 Campus Solutions since August 2015.  After being involved with the implementation as Project lead in Finance and implementing 6 modules (GL, KK, AP, Purchasing, Asset Management and Expenses) along with the workflows to support our approvals processes, I am always eager to learn from our peers and other institutions on embracing best practices for our industry.  I was also highly involved with our Student Financials integration from the Cashier's perspective along with reporting.  I continue to work towards making the system work better and more efficiently and look to having the opportunity to share what Chapman's processes have in common with our HEUG members as well as learn from them.  I am happy to say that I've attended all of the last 5 HEUG Alliance conferences and even presented on our AWE/AP and Travel Expense workflow last year and again at our newly minted SWHEUG in Costa Mesa, California this summer. As a newer member of HEUG but an established private educational institution, Chapman is dedicated to bringing best practices to our processes.  I am proud to contribute to those ideas and processes as it strengthens our ties within our mutual communities.
