Anne Groniger, business support specialist for psychological science, was hired in January 2016 after beginning as a temporary employee in September 2015. Anne says her department and Dr. Clair Kueny, chair of psychological science, are what she enjoys most about working at S&T. She loves what she does and gets to do it with the best chair and faculty on campus.
“Anne has been a critical part of psychological science for as long as I’ve been at S&T,” says Kueny. “She has supported a young department as it navigates its way through S&T processes and helped me, as a new chair, learn the ropes. Her Molly visits and pictures brighten everyone’s day, and students love to come by, chat and keep in touch with her even after they graduate. We are really lucky to have her as part of our team!”
Anne’s advice to other employees is to ask questions. “If you need help, don’t understand something, want to do more or learn more, ask questions. You can’t get further in life if you don’t.”
As an animal lover, Anne has a passion for American quarter horses. She had an old mare named Bobo for 32 years and when looking back, she cherishes the things they did together and the things Bobo taught her. She has Bobo’s last foal, named Tink, and another horse named Red who are both 19 years old.
In addition to her horses, Anne has a border collie named Molly, a three-legged rescue she received in December 2016 from Odessa, Texas. Molly was under-socialized and possibly abused when Anne took her in, but now she is a happy and healthy dog.
