Featured Staff Senator: Sheri Steiner

Sheri and FamilySheri Steiner, City College Dean Administrative Assistant, has been a “Yellowjacket” since 2005, previously employed at Rocky Mountain College for 5 years as Director of Camps and Conferences in the Outreach Division, under the supervision of Dr. John Cech.  Before taking a career in higher education, she spent 30 years in customer service, retail, and events. Sheri has two adult children, Alyssa Pates (Westerman) and Sean Pates, and three grandchildren, Wyatt, Norah and Finn.


Sheri became the chair of staff senate when a vacancy opened unexpectedly 2 ½ years ago and has continued in that role.


“Being engaged in staff senate brings a whole new experience and perspective as an employee. It provides the opportunity to meet other staff, to become better informed about the University and the MUS, as well as a place to engage in community outreach and also have fun with other campus staff.  We are here to support staff, provide professional development opportunities, lift morale, improve communication with our constituencies and assist with student retention. It has been a win-win for me to be a part of this group of outstanding people who work hard, go above and beyond every day, and are truly committed to their responsibilities as a senator and employee. I encourage those who want to learn and meet other MSUB staff, to get involved.Sheri and Family2


I have had an amazing and interesting 13 years at City College with the continuous change in faculty and deans, but I truly love what I do every day. It is a wonderful place to come to five days a week and a place of many opportunities.  As Winston Churchill stated, “The pessimist sees difficulty in every opportunity. The optimist sees the opportunity in every difficulty.”


“In my spare time, I enjoy hanging out with my husband Terry, biking, walking, and taking short trips around Montana. I enjoy cooking and eating good food and discovering new wines. I am blessed to have two of my grandchildren in Billings to watch grow up, and my daughter, who is my best friend.”
