IDRE-OIT Administrative Coordinator

If you want information, to locate someone, to find a service, or to find a resource at IDRE or OIT or UCLA, or anywhere in Southern California for that matter – contact Joanne Fife. She knows everything that goes on at UCLA, and almost every person here. And, what Joanne doesn’t know, she’ll find out.
Joanne is the Events and Logistics coordinator for IDRE/OIT. She performs a wide range of jobs that range from handling logistics for three-day conferences for 300 people to helping maintain the IDRE web to making sure that visitors to the Visualization Portal have a worthwhile experience.
She can tell out-of-towners the best place to stay in Westwood, get travelers from China to the Portal on time, and schedule a meeting between 20 people from 20 different places. She knows almost everyone’s phone number by heart, and has a rolodex stuffed full of the numbers she doesn’t know.
