College of Western Idaho (CWI) has announced Brittney Trimmer is Staff of the Month for October.

Trimmer started working at CWI as an Administrative Assistant for the School of Language and Arts in 2010. She then transitioned to Administrative Assistant to the Associate Vice President and is now a Project Manager III in Academic Affairs. She holds a degree in Graphic Design.

Her nomination states Trimmer displays the core values, “Serving all in an Atmosphere of Caring, Acting with Integrity and Respecting the Dignity of Opinions.” It notes, “Brittney Trimmer is an exceptional colleague and team player and is awesome at her job. She is one my co-worker ‘life-lines’.  She has so many talents and is involved in so much here at the college that it seems impossible to recognize them all. She is always willing to help, answer questions, and is very responsive. She’s approachable, knowledgeable and fun, and everyone wants her on their team.” 

Trimmer’s involvement at CWI goes way beyond her job. She has served as Staff Senate President, co-chaired the Culture and Employee Engagement Committee, sits on the Safety Committee, ATAC, and more. She is a one-stop shop of information and assistance for so many colleagues. She is known to help with questions about technology, policy and processes, scheduling, courses, curriculum development, and acts as a department trainer for incoming faculty and staff. 

Trimmer and her husband have lived in Idaho most their lives. They’ve been together for 11 years and have two daughters and two dogs. When they are looking for some down time they enjoy camping, fishing, and spending time with friends and family. Trimmer is a Realtor in her spare time and also loves helping her husband remodel homes and build his custom sheds.

Please join in congratulating Brittney. Thank you for being such a valuable part of the CWI community.
