Roslyn bids adieu
GATTON'S Roslyn Karrasch is one of those rare people who can say with sincerity after 35 years working at the same place: “I've really loved my job and become and remain personal friends with all my bosses.”
Roslyn recently retired from her position as Executive Assistant to the Executive Dean and Director of the UQ's Gatton campus.
During that time, Roslyn has played an active role in helping the campus' transition from the Queensland Agricultural College to UQ's second campus in 1990 and later, to the home of UQ's state-of-the-art animal research and teaching facilities and UQ's Veterinary Science School in 2010.
She has come a long way from the 19-year-old who joined the QAC's typing pool in 1976.
“I had planned to work at the college for three years then go off travelling but decided to stay on because I was so happy in the job,” she said.
She said she hoped travel would be a large part of her retirement plans as well as spending more time with family and friends and caring for her mother, now aged 83, who lives next door to her in Gatton.
