Monday July 9, 2012. The Kuali Open Library Environment (OLE) project is pleased to welcome Patty Mescher as the new OLE Project Manager.
Patty has been employed by UC Davis (UCD) since 1986 with a functional background in Student Housing Accounts Receivables and a technical background as a software engineer and manager of Systems Development and Operations for UCD Accounting and Financial Services.
UCD has been a Kuali partner for several years, and has implemented Kuali Financial System (KFS) and Kuali Rice. To fulfill a portion of the UCD partner commitment to the Kuali community, Patty served as the KFS Accounts Receivable Development Manager from 2007 to the Release of KFS 3.0 in 2009. She then served as the KFS Project Manager from 2009 to 2011.
Patty has broad experience and perspective which ranges from inside the Kuali Community and outside as an implementer of its software. She will bring this depth of experience to the ongoing development of Kuali OLE, as we move towards our 0.8 release in the fall of 2012 and 1.0 release in 2013. She will lead the OLE Core Team, and work with the OLE Board and Functional Council.
