Faculty & Staff Spotlight: Aprille Lim, UNT System

Aprille Lim, Financial Analyst, UNT System

Aprille Lim is super bright, which makes her a valuable fit in the UNT System's Treasury department. Don't take our word for it, let her record speak for itself, and her record says she earned a bachelor's and master's degree in finance in only four years. Ten days later, she started working for us. She's a treasury junky with a sense of humor: "I love all functions of Treasury," she says. "Don’t fall asleep just yet, but I’m responsible for debt management, prepping bond issuances [and] assisting in special projects." You might not know this proud dog mom twice over (Duchess is on the left and Yoné's on the right in the photo) holds dual citizenship and plans one day to move and work internationally to learn her parents' native language. Just where will she be headed? Read on.

 

Q&A

What is your favorite aspect of your job?I love all functions of Treasury and how much we collaborate with other departments. I’m thankful for this position as it enables me to engage with those around me which is ultimately my favorite thing about my job -- the people!

What employee benefit or activity would you like to see added to UNT World?
More UNT Worldwide events for staff to safely come together and relax!

What is your proudest work moment?
 Last year, we sold about $11 million of Historic Tax Credits for the benefit of UNT Dallas. That’s a lot of future scholarships! Being able to help in the transaction was an awesome experience.

What is your proudest non-work moment?
Prior to these three years at UNT World, I had just recently earned both my bachelor's and master's in Finance in four years, then started working at UNT World 10 days later. Talk about a hustle! I now own a house and two dogs, enjoying the blue (sometimes rainy) skies in Sanger.

What is a fact about you that may surprise your colleagues?
I’m a dual citizen of the Philippines, and although I haven’t visited the Philippines in a decade, I plan to move there and work internationally and learn my parents’ native language.

WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE...
Restaurant?: Jolibee, a Filipino fried chicken fast food chain
