What excites you most about joining the PPMC?

I love the teams' unique strengths and qualities that they each have. There is there is a growing forward mindset, and you can feel the energy when you are around them. Each person here is ready to "do good" in their work. 

Why is public service important to you?

Public service is vital to thriving communities, these are so many entities that of public service that enhance quality of life, tackle tough problems and build better futures. Growing up as a military kid,  I was taught to always be a helper and to encourage others to be a helper too - at home, in your neighborhood, and community. Small actions can change the world.
