DAFVM Spotlight Employee: Casey Moss
After graduating with a business degree from Mississippi State University, Casey Moss wanted to find a way to remain part of the Bulldog family but live close to her family in Pontotoc. As the administrative assistant for the Pontotoc Experiment Station, she achieves goals.
“I grew up in Pontotoc and went to high school in Pontotoc, so it’s nice to come back closer to home,” Moss said. “I’m still with the university, though, which is great.”
In her role as administrative assistant, Moss said she stays busy managing large quantities of paperwork and overseeing day-to-day operations in the office.
“I do a lot of the accounting and paying bills,” she said. “I work with the budget, and I handle the hiring work, travel paperwork and payroll. Keeping everything organized helps things run smoothly.”
Moss said her favorite part of the workday is meeting people in the community who have questions about samples, such as soil samples.
“I really enjoy being able to help out members of my community by directing them to the people who can help them with their samples,” Moss said. “It’s interesting getting to be a part of that.”
When she’s not working, Moss returns to MSU’s campus for sporting events whenever she gets the chance. She also enjoys spending time with her niece and nephew.
“I love the atmosphere of Mississippi State,” Moss said. “Even though I’m not in Starkville anymore, that atmosphere stays in your heart while you’re working for an extension of MSU.”
