During the past month, the Delaware Division of Historical and Cultural Affairs has welcomed three new employees including an addition to the Business Services Team and two new staff members at the Buena Vista conference/event center. Following are profiles of these newest members of the division family.
As an administrative specialist for the Business Services Team, Sharon Trotman provides the division’s front-line connection with the public by answering phones and interacting with visitors to the agency’s main office at 21 The Green in Dover. She is looking forward to further assisting her teammates by taking on greater responsibilities including processing of bills and purchase orders and helping with any other fiscal or administrative-support services that are needed.
Originally from Washington, D.C., Trotman has lived in Dover, Del. since 1995 and has worked for the Division of Substance Abuse and Mental Health and as a secretary for Reformation Lutheran Church in Milford.
Executive housekeeper Sarah Granda and administrative specialist Alexandra Luzier are involved in every aspect of the Buena Vista conference/event center’s operations including maintenance and upkeep of the house and grounds, set-up and break-down of events, food service, hospitality, customer relations and inventory management.
A 2018 graduate of High Point University in North Carolina, Sarah Granda earned her bachelor’s degree in strategic communications with a minor in event planning and marketing. During her student years, she worked in her mother’s daycare center where she learned invaluable lessons in interpersonal relations and in calmly handling unexpected situations—skills that will serve her well at Buena Vista. The New York State native grew up in Wilmington and now lives in Kennett Square, Pa. She is looking forward to pursuing her career in event planning.
Dover, Del. native Alexandra Luzier is a 2018 graduate of the University of Delaware where she earned a bachelor’s degree in Organizational and Community Leadership. When she ends her temporary job at Buena Vista in August 2018, she will begin pursuing her master’s degree in public administration from West Chester University in Pennsylvania with the eventual goal of working in the nonprofit community-service sector.
