How many rock stars do you know? Well, we have our very own! Sissi was born and raised in Austria, Europe and moved to Durham in 2006. She began playing bass and classical guitar when she was 12 years old and went on to study classical guitar and conducting in Vienna, Austria. Since 1991, Sissi has been a performing and recording artist and member of the band Alice Donut, as a bass player. Alice Donut has recorded 12 full-length albums and numerous singles, and has toured and performed in North America, Europe and Japan. See--she is the real deal! (Yep, you're already Googling her to get the scoop).
Sissi began her daytime career in website design in 1999. She is our departmental Web administrator, providing support to SSRI and its affiliates with expertise in Web support, HTML5, XHTML, CSS, Drupal, Dreamweaver, Photoshop, Flash, and audio and video production. She's pretty much all things Web and design. Sissi was a freelance Web developer for Fuqua School of Business from 2010 to 2012, and joined the SSRI team in 2012. When she's not playing rock star, she is playing mom to her two kids.
