Maine DOE Team member Susan Wilson is being highlighted this week as part of the Get to know the DOE Team Campaign. Learn a little more about Susan in the brief question and answer below.
What are your roles with DOE?
I am an Accounting Assistant Technician with the E.U.T. (Education in Unorganized Territories) I have multiple job tasks, but primarily I handle payroll and accounts payable for our three E.U.T. schools.
What do you like best about your job?
Besides the fantastic people I work with, I enjoy that I have a variety of tasks within my job description. It keeps things interesting!
How or why did you decide on this career?
Before coming to the E.U.T. I had worked many years in retail management, with the goal of owning my own store. A few years ago I decided that my goals had changed, and that I needed a new career path. The E.U.T. position was something that matched my skill set and the education world was something completely different for me. I applied and fortunately was offered the position.
What do you like to do outside of work for fun?
I enjoy spending time with family & friends, traveling to tropical locations, camping, and DIY home projects.
