Other things about me...

What steps is your company taking to sustain your organization and morale in the current economy?

The Human Services Department offers a range of professional development courses and a mentor program. I am participating in the mentor program this year both as a mentor and mentee. I also provide my staff opportunities to connect outside of our regular work duties via lunch, hikes and after work happy hours. Currently, the county is experiencing staff reductions. Due to the reductions, last year, two positions were eliminated from my team. The reductions were very challenging for my team. I led a transparent process with good communication to support the morale of my staff during this time. In addition, our department leadership prioritizes transparency and communication to create an environment where it is possible to regroup and make progress after such a challenging event.
