<<<p>I’ve had five jobs since university. Of the previous four, my longest stint was four years. Today marks thirteen at Notre Dame. That’s the great thing about working for a university. After thirteen years, I’m still not bored, and there’s still so much to do.</p>

<p>We set up a performance budget for our recent <a href="nd.edu/">www.nd.edu</a> redesign. Now we need to setup automated monitoring.</p>
