I joined the Department of Employee Benefits & Work/Life in 2010.  In my role as Benefits Services Specialist,  I meet with new employees to make their benefit elections. I work with all employees to make changes to their benefits, answer any benefit related questions or assist employee with any benefit issues that may arise. I work closely with our benefit vendors to ensure our employees receive the best service possible.  In addition, I administer our Educational Benefits, also known as Tuition Remission and Cash Awards.  I administer COBRA benefits, and assist retirees with continued benefits. Lastly, I coordinate the Annual Employee Benefits & Work/Life Fair each year.


I hold a Bachelors Degree in Healthcare Administration. Prior to joining Ithaca College, I worked in the healthcare industry, as a practice manager as well as in human resources.     

Please feel free to contact me directly at jtinkham@ithaca.edu  or (607)274-7947 with any benefit questions.
