Leanora Minai is the executive director of communications for the Office of Communication Services and serves as the editor-in-chief for the Working@Duke print and digital publications. She has been a staff member at Duke University since 2004 and, like many Duke staff and faculty, began working remotely soon after the COVID-19 pandemic outbreak and stay-at-home orders.
After 16 months of remote work from home in Durham, North Carolina, Leanora transitioned to remote first – from Florida. She will share periodic updates and insights about telecommuting on this blog. If there’s something you’d like to share or want Leanora to explore, please write to her at Leanora.Minai@Duke.edu.
