When you walk into the president’s office, there will be a bright new smiling face at the front desk: Patricia Smedberg, the new administrative assistant to the chief of staff.
Originally from Tifton in south Georgia, the Clarkesville resident holds a B.A. in English from the University of Georgia. She previously worked at Initials, Inc., a home party plan company that specializes in personalized handbags and home accessories.
Smedberg conceded that one of her favorite things about Brenau so far has been its art collection. She has a bit of an artistic streak herself. She creates pottery on her own potter’s wheel at home.
“Brenau has a wonderful reputation in the community,” Smedberg said. “I saw the job opening posted, and I was very intrigued. I’m glad to be part of the family.”
