1. What excites you most about joining the PPMC?
The PPMC has established itself as a valuable resource to support the important work of local, regional, and state government as well as community organizations and associations. I am excited to be able to join this group of committed difference-makers as we support governmental and organizational change-agents!
2. Who in public service inspires you?
I am inspired by my predecessor LaShonda Garnes! To successfully work in this space you must have a commitment to being able to see and motivate others to press toward the vision of what can be. LaShonda is a visionary community leader that encourages not only individuals, but entire organizations to shoot for the stars! Inspiring!
3. Why is public service important to you?
Public service is important to me because I believe that we all have a responsibility of care and concern for one another. I believe that our time on this earth is not exclusively about self. My personal philosophy is that our time on this earth is about determining how we as individuals can contribute to making our world a better place not just for ourselves, but also for those around us. It takes a servant’s heart to work in public service and remain motivated to do so because it is challenging work. But beyond the challenge of the work is the positive impact of the work. Those of us that work in public service impact and change lives on a daily basis through our efforts. And that fact is why public service is important to me.
