Employee Spotlight: Marlene Slichter
This month we would like to introduce Marlene Slichter, Lead Custodian for Custodial Services at Facilities Management. She has worked for Facilities for 20 years, and lives in Davis. Marlene likes working for FM as it has given her many opportunities for continued education as well as self-improvement. Her duties include helping supervisors with whatever is needed to make campus a cleaner and safer place for staff, faculty, and students. She especially enjoys working with the researchers in Chemistry Annex, as she feels she gets to see “the future,” including research on Alzheimer’s, cancer, solar technology, and food safety. Marlene likes to see what the different cultures and people bring to the campus, and knows the future is going to be an amazing place!
One of Marlene’s favorite memories at FM is getting to know her friend retired Professor Marilyn Olmstead, who after her years of paid service, volunteered her time to continue research and mentor those who followed in her footsteps in the Chemistry Department. In her free time, Marlene likes to quilt, solar cook, and take her cat to the lake. Thank you for your hard work and dedication, Marlene!
