“Regina demonstrates an excellent work ethic and initiative. Her attitude and approach to performing her duties are incredibly refreshing,” said Tuyen Nguyen, assistant director of Accounts Payable. “Regina always goes the extra mile.”

“Regina has provided a fantastic level of support to the department and the university,” said Clifford Shore, chief procurement officer of Fiscal Services.

Catherine Staggs, assistant director of Accounts Payable, shared that Reynon has conducted multiple tests on the new AP Form Banner Workflow to make sure that the system is working as intended. “She actively works to develop positive relationships with her co-workers and other departmental staff to make sure that our student payments are processed on time,” said Staggs.

Jesse Guessford, director of curriculum and initiatives in undergraduate education in the Office of the Provost, lauds Reynon for her support of the Office for Student Scholarship, Creative Activities, and Research (OSCAR). “Regina went above and beyond to make sure our students were paid for their research experiences,” said Guessford. “Without her help, the OSCAR program would not have functioned, and students would not have been able to participate in a life-changing education experience.”

Quyen Le, director of Accounts Payable, said Reynon is a key contributor to the department's stability and productivity. “She is one of the main reasons the Accounts Payable team works well together and thrives,” said Le. “She is always professional in work habits and social interactions, specifically with students, faculty, and staff.”

How did you come to Mason: 

My career had always been in the hospitality industry (hotel and airlines) so when COVID hit, the hospitality industry was badly affected. In view of this, I was looking for a more stable opportunity. I wanted to diversify my experience and knowledge, and George Mason University was the right fit.

Best day on the job:

Is when I know that I served the Mason community, students, and vendors to the best of my ability, whether I am answering an inquiry by email or processing the request/invoice.

What do you like best about working at Mason: 

The diverse culture that I work with and yet we embrace each other's differences, experiences, and knowledge. In addition, the support and guidance that I receive from my managers.

What do you like to do when you’re not working: 

Spending time with family and friends. Watch a good movie. I am fond of movies that are based on true stories. Do a brisk walk in our community and enjoy nature.
