“Perkins is a favorite amongst students and faculty alike. She is hardworking, honest, and brings to her work a passion that encourages all she encounters. Additionally, she speaks their language. I have often marveled at how easily she adapts her communication to her audiences no matter their backgrounds, interests, or mission. She often states, “Communication is everything and everything is communication.”
