Ratesha Berthier came to Princeton in 2005 as the part-time assistant to the operations administrator for University Health Services. In addition to performing her job functions successfully, she balances her 24-hour work week with being a wife, mother, and degree-seeking student. Although this may be a daunting task for many, Ratesha credits the flexibility of her job and support of her department with her ability to manage her professional and personal life with relative ease.
Prior to coming to Princeton, Ratesha was only able to take one course per semester due to the time and commitment constraints of a full-time position. Determined to receive her B.A. in Psychology, she has been able to accelerate the process by taking multiple classes each semester because of her part-time schedule at the University. She said, “I have a great working relationship with my supervisor. She asks me what areas I would like to grow in and how she can help.”
In her job function, Ratesha provides administrative support, manages the allowances the clinical and administrative staffs have for professional development, makes business travel arrangements, assists with the credentialing process of the clinical staff and maintains personnel files. She noted, “I work with a good group of people who are extremely supportive and encouraging.”
