City of Hillsboro, Oregon – Public Service Fellow


My favorite adventure in life was….

Going to Riot Fest, a 3-day music festival in Chicago

The most important decision that I’ve made in life was…

To act with my future self’s best interests in mind

If I was booking the guests for the GovLove podcast, I would book…

Someone who has been in local government for a long time and can talk about what they wish they would have done differently at the beginning of their career

If I couldn’t work in my current position, I would…

Find a different position within my city, or find a different city to work for

I made the choice to attend #ELGL18 because….

I’ve never been to a conference and want to learn more about ELGL

The book on your bookshelf that you intend to read but haven’t is…

Any book that teaches you to live more in the present moment

I’ll know that I made the right choice to attend #ELGL18 if…

I leave the conference with concrete actions that I can take

If I was writing the questions for the feature, I would have asked…

What is your favorite part of your job?
