I joined the Ithaca College Office of Human Resources in 2010. In my role as Leave & Policy Administration Specialist, I administer the College's Short Term Disability and Worker's Compensation benefits. In addition, I assist employees to make their benefit elections, and to make changes when a qualified life event occurs. I'm available to assist employees in navigating complex benefit matters in collaboration with our benefit vendor partners.  I work closely with our benefit vendor partners to ensure our employees receive the best possible service. I  also administer COBRA benefits, and assist retirees with continued benefits as well as administering life insurance benefits. 


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

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