Jessica HulettJessica Hulett
(940) 397-4670 ⨠ B112

Theatre secretary Jessica Hulett accidentally on-purpose ended up in Wichita Falls almost 10 years ago, moving here from beautiful Las Vegas, Nevada. She thinks about moving anywhere but here at least once a week, but manages to stay put ("I love my house, and I hate moving"). Jess joined her work family at Midwestern State University four years ago as the secretary for both the Department of Mass Communication and the Department of Theatre. Her office door is always open to assist faculty, students, and anyone else who manages to find their way to the end of the hallway with their clock emergencies, their toner emergencies, and their chocolate emergencies. If you don't find Jess in her office, you will find her at one of two copy machines (or running between both), scurrying across campus delivering something, tracking down one or both very busy department chairs for a signature. Outside of MSU, Jessica is an ordained minister and occasionally officiates weddings for a local venue. Jessica loves traveling and never passes up the opportunity for a new adventure.
