UIS Health Services’ Linda Nixon named the Employee of the Month for August

Linda Nixon, Health Services office manager, has been named the University of Illinois Springfield Employee of the Month for August 2019. Nixon has worked in Health Services for more than 10 years.

Nixon is known for her quality work, expert knowledge and for going above and beyond to help her co-workers in need.

“Since working with her, there’s been countless occasions she has stepped up without blinking an eye to give assistance. Without hesitation she’s helped myself, several other staff, and students with the simplest of tasks, and some things that haven’t been quite so simple,” said her supervisor.

As part of her job, Nixon reviews all announcements, posters, mass emails, formal notifications, official forms/documents, social media and advertisements for Health Services.

“She does a great job corresponding with vendors, other campus contacts, and other campus departments/staff,” said her nominator. “She is outgoing and willing to reach out to seek information when needed without hesitation Linda uses good judgement and can problem solve efficiently, particularly during stressful situations.”

Her nominator says Nixon is friendly and always has a positive attitude when working with students, staff or anyone on campus.

“Linda is fun to work with in the office as well,” said her nominator. “She is friendly, flexible, loyal and easygoing. The atmosphere in this entire office is very much like a family, which is very important to all of us.”

Nixon often works late hours to make sure Health Services has a presence at orientation, campus events and to make sure important deadlines are met.

“Linda is a valuable member of the Health Services team,” said her nominator. “It’s comforting to know that I can depend on Linda.”
