Emmi Welteroth, an accomplished project manager at the College of Agricultural Sciences, brings over six years of dedicate experience in project management to her role. Collaborating with the Marketing and Digital Education units, Emmi lends technical expertise in the process of planning and executing diverse projects. With a keen attention to detail and strategic foresight, Emmi monitors a wide array of projects, initiatives, and requests to ensure a seamless execution of work within the unit. Emmi also administers Workfront, the project management system leveraged within the Marketing and Digital Education Units, onboarding and training users and ensuring the system stays operational.

Emmi's notable achievements here at Penn State include spearheading the onboarding and adoption of Workfront, the unit's project management system. She defined streamlined processes and workflows, facilitated seamless migration, and conducted comprehensive training sessions for each team, ensuring smooth integration and maximizing platform utilization. 

Additionally, Emmi played a pivotal role in collaborating with the unit director to develop a structured prioritization process for initiatives.
