Marie views her position as HR & Office Manager at AZACS as one of service. She believes she is responsible to take the barriers out of the way for staff so they can concentrate on students. This includes having their pay and benefits working correctly, getting them the items they need to do the job and to have established smooth processes. Staff should not have to worry about these areas and feel confident they will be taken care of properly.
