James prides himself in assisting others, and every role he plays — from supporting character in his favorite video game to Office Coordinator at PSC — lets him enjoy the rush of experiencing a team win. Over the years, he honed his support and communication skills to a razor’s edge and joined in on any project he could, applying his optimism, technical prowess, and enthusiasm to help his team to the finish line effectively and efficiently. Now, at PSC, he gets to see the effect his input has not only with his colleagues, but all across Michigan.

James is PSC’s Office Coordinator, which requires him to be a magician, detective, or technology whisperer, as need arises. Every day, he keeps the flow of business running smoothly by assisting in scheduling meetings, managing calendars, and assisting with day‐​to‐​day operations. No matter what PSCers need to get the job done — their favorite type of pen, a replacement computer monitor, or ideas for icebreaker games for meetings — James will scrounge, source, or invent it. He also supports onboarding tasks and solves technology issues, making sure that computer systems are ready to meet fellow PSCers’ needs.

James comes to PSC from a history of management and other support roles. Most recently, he spent his time as a student support administrator for Insight School of Michigan, an online high school, motivating students toward graduation.
