The Ray Marshall Center welcomes Alanna Burney as its new administrative associate. She will be the third member of Center’s small but effective three-person administrative team, and provide support to assistant director Susie Riley and senior administrative associate Karen White.
Burney, a native of Houston, has had a long career at the University of Texas in Austin. In 2000, she served as the accounts payable supervisor at the LBJ School of Public Affairs’ Business Office, where she also received the Staff Appreciation Award in 2002-03. The following year, she moved on to serve on University of Texas’ Staff Council. Burney later worked at the College of Communications where she handled the College’s grants and contracts, both pre- and post-award.
Outside of work, Burney is a food aficionado, active gardener, and travel enthusiast. She previously lived in Central America where she owned and operated a deli and sandwich shop. She plans to open a restaurant in Austin in the future. The Ray Marshall Center is excited to have Burney on the team.
