MERRIE HARRINGTON, Administrative Assistant, joined Loyola University MD in 2011 from the nonprofit secondary school sector. She brings enthusiasm and an ability to welcome all who stumble in to her domain in STC08B. She juggles many tasks such as housing extensions, re-keys, and supervision of a large team of office assistants. She likes working in Excel and Word, and considers every day at Loyola a fresh, clean chapter in a new book.
Recently, Merrie became a McGuire Scholar and hopes to pursue a degree in Writing. A previously published fiction writer, she’s currently working on a novel about a returned Iraqi veteran. In her spare time, she hits things (legally), whether it be weeds in her garden, or tennis balls in various leagues in the county. She is married and has a grown son and a Springer Spaniel.
