Staff member enjoys 45 years, and counting
When Rose M. Coleman accepted a position as a typist in a steno pool in 1956, there was no way of knowing she was beginning a relationship with Ohio State that would last 45 years, and counting.
"I was 19, almost 20. It was just going to be a temporary job," Coleman said. "I'd just finished a year of business school, and was getting ready to go on interviews. A friend working here in a steno pool said they needed some help and convinced me that I should come over and talk to them."
Her career has taken her through much of the medical campus. Her first position was in the Columbus Psychiatric Hospital, which later became the Department of Psychiatry. She then worked as an assistant for Robert Atwell at the Columbus Tuberculosis Hospital, which eventually merged with the University Hospitals system, and continued to work with him when he moved to the School of Allied Medical Professions, and when he spent a year as acting dean of the College of Medicine. She is now administrative secretary for Stephen L. Wilson, director of Allied Medical Professions.
She said she has no immediate plans to retire, although she may consider it in a couple of years. "I'm still enjoying the job and they seem to like having me around," she said.
The secret to her longevity? "Just being here and working with good people over the years and the opportunity to make moves within the medical complex," Coleman said. "It has been interesting and challenging."
