March ’24 DAR Star: Janet Lee Epperson

by Rachael Andrews

We work with absolutely incredible people—and we all have varied interests and experiences, which adds to the unique makeup of the University of Georgia. We’ll be regularly spotlighting a few rock stars from around the division so that even if you don’t cross paths with them in the break room or Zoom with them on a weekly basis, you can get to know colleagues who can enhance your work life and productivity.

Without further ado, please enjoy our Q&A with Janet Lee Epperson…

Name: Janet Lee Epperson

Title: Assistant Manager of Records Management/Quality Assurance, Advancement IT

  • I review biographical data entered by all GAIL users and for Quality Assurance, help with special projects and provide training for new employees and student workers. Basically, I use a variety of reports and queries to see what data is going in and ensure it is accurate and complete, look for things that happen but shouldn’t and through proactive research find new data along the way.

Where can we find you?

Time in DAR: 26 1/2 years

Work project you’ve been most proud of participating in: The conversion and archiving of our department’s paper folders. Honoring the legacy of our alumni and appreciation of the documents and treasures in these folders has been one of the most rewarding and interesting projects I’ve participated in.

On a typical Saturday evening, you can find me: Camping, enjoying live music, or spending time with friends and family.

Favorite book: The Lord of the Rings.

Lately I’ve been watching: Justified.

My dream vacation (cost and time aside) is to visit: Drive cross country in our camper and see the USA!

We hope you learned something new about Janet. We are lucky to have her on our DAR team! Feel free to reach out to her if you have questions about the One Ring or need camping tips!
