Staff Spotlight: Saara Moskowitz

Describe briefly what you do and how long have you been at Brown.

I’m the Student Support Services Coordinator. After students meet with our deans, I process various changes such as course load reductions and medical leaves.  I also coordinate the return from leave process and manage our concussion database to assist students with resources on campus during their concussion recovery. 

I’ve been working at Brown for a decade! Prior to Student Support Services in October, I worked in the Computer Science department and then at the Medical School. I love being a part of Campus Life where we get to work so closely with the other offices, and learn more about what each department does. 

What professional accomplishment are you most proud of?

In my previous position they used to call me “the human mail merge.”  In all seriousness, being here to help the students is so satisfying. Whether that’s by making sure all 300 CS student employees submitted their hours and received paychecks on time, or registering a med students for a coveted Block Island rotation slot, just knowing that I made a student’s experience here a little easier or more enjoyable makes me proud. 

Name something about you most people don't know.

One summer, I worked as a day camp counselor in Anchorage, Alaska. I even spent a night camping in a tent in the “daylight.” 

If you weren't doing this job, what would you be doing?

I’d love the opportunity to stay home with my kids while they’re still young. One nice thing about this pandemic is that despite the challenges of working from home, I get to see my kids growing and learning right in front of me.
