Jennifer Holtmann, Associate Chair
I have worked for Webster in Information Technology for six years. I graduated from Webster in 1997 with a degree in Music Education. At the time, they were cutting music departments so I started computer training and have stayed in the computer field since. I am now getting my Masters in Inclusive Classroom. In my free time, I play with my two wonderful children, garden, read, and cook (the last three only when I have time after children. LOL).
John Watts, Secretary
Originally from Indiana, John Watts holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts in acting from Webster University and a Master’s in Library Science from Indiana University. John is the Instruction and Liaison Librarian at Emerson Library where he helps faculty and students with research, develops the library’s education collection, and oversees the assessment of library instruction. John also performs his own research on the intersection between performance and information literacy instruction. In his spare time, he enjoys reading, live theatre, and running.
Sanela Bejdic, Compensation Chair
Born and raised in Dubrovnik Croatia, I came to US as a war refugee with my family in September of 1995 and we settled in St. Louis. I received my undergraduate degree in Journalism from Webster in 2004 and my Masters in Media Communications from Webster in 2005. After graduation I worked at Washington University and then St. Louis Community College, and in August 2010 I came back to work at Webster as the Academic Resources Coordinator. I am married, with a 16 month old son Omar, and another one on the way due in Sept! I enjoy reading, cooking, travel, spending time with friends and family and playing with our two beagle rescues Charlie and Lucy.
