Katy Price is this month's Upstate Face

Katy Price joined Upstate Medical University’s Pharmacology Department in 2002. In her role as Staff Assistant, Katy is responsible for assisting and meeting the work needs of approximately 70 members of the Pharmacology Department. Her duties are many and include: placing orders, department and grant accounting, package receiving, assisting with travel and reimbursements, preparing for seminars, as well as being responsible for the dark room, supplies, lab coats, etc.; whatever is needed. 

When asked what she enjoys most about her position, Katy replied, “I enjoy what I do because the work is so diverse. There isn’t much repetition and I’m always on the go, which requires a lot of multi-tasking.  I’m a people person and really appreciate the cultural diversity in Pharmacology.  I don’t have the opportunity to travel internationally, but my interactions with my co-workers allow me to familiarize myself with various cultures and customs from around the world.”

Outside of work, Katy has a real passion for her dog and cat and all animals, flower gardening, vegetable gardening and canning. She enjoys reading, playing the guitar, photography and skiing. When asked what she would like people to know about her, Katy replied, “I’m an easy-going person and I enjoy making people laugh.  I’m not a worrier and I try to take things easy, so I’m a good influence on stressed-out people, I think.  When I retire, I look forward to doing something totally different that will probably be outdoors.  Life is good!”

Katy, we thank you for your nine years of dedicated service to Upstate Medical University and to the Department of Pharmacology.
