Good morning, GovLoop!

Thanks to a combination of timing and goodwill, I stumbled into a position in municipal government 2+ years ago. After completing a graduate degree at Wake Forest University, I joined the City of Winston-Salem as an intern in the office of Sustainability. Then in March of this year, I was hired to handle capital and budget planning for Property & Facilities Management. A secondary function of my role is special projects, as I am currently leading an enterprise installation of automated vehicle locators in the city’s fleet vehicles. My friends like to say that the great value in earning an MA in Comm is the ability to argue your way into a budget job; I try to remind them I’m also competent 😉

In service of professional dev, I’m taking credit accounting courses to work toward passing the CPA exam and recently completed a year-long leadership fellowship. Please don’t hesitate to reach out! I intend to be active on GovLoop and I look forward to hearing about your work. Cheers,
