So far, what’s your proudest accomplishment in 2019

Planning a local government field trip for UD students to the City of Rehoboth including lunch, presentations by 5 city managers, and a tour of the new facilities.

Valentines Day is in February. What do you “love” about your job?

I’m in my last semester of grad school getting my MPA, but I work 20hrs a week for the Institute of Public Administration. I love my job because it’s a great opportunity to work on real government contracted projects as a student.

…go to Australia.

10 Year Challenge! What were you doing in 2009? How did it help you reach your current position?

I was an Aircraft Hydraulic Mechanic in the USAF. My military service cultivated my passion for public service.
