I became a civil servant becuase I wanted to serve. I know it may sound cliche, but it is true. I started out as a Project Manager in the U.S. Department of Labor’s Job Corps Program. I fell in love with the program as I watched young people who took advantage of the benefits of the program completely turn their lives around. I worked a job for a couple of years in a farl less exciting job after my Job Corps position ended, then found something better. For the past three years, I have served in a detail, running the largest shared neutrals Mediation program in the country for the Seattle Federal Executive Board. The job is creative and challenging with tons of automomy and room for personal and professional growth while also providing the stabiity of Federal pay and benefits.
