Administrative Specialist

Staff: Administrative



I am Courtny Nielsen, Administrative Specialist for the Department of Urology.

I grew up in Renton Washington, and came to the University of Washington as an undergraduate where I received my Bachelors in Psychology and Gender, Women, and Sexuality Studies. After graduating, I was missing our beautiful campus and decided to come back as a Program Assistant supporting Transportation Services. In my time with Transportation, I discovered my interest in Human Resources and completed the Human Resources Management Certificate with Professional and Continuing Education. Shortly after, I was hired by Professional Organization Development as a Training Coordinator and within four months was promoted to Training and Onboarding Specialist where I was given the amazing opportunity to develop and present Welcome Day, the University of Washington’s new employee orientation. My passion for helping our UW Community led me to my next position as an HCM Staff Specialist with the Integrated Service Center where I was able to support groups across campus with their Workday transactions. I am passionate about the amazing work that the Department of Urology does, and am thrilled to be given the opportunity to support this work.
