What are your roles with DOE?  

I work for Special Services of DOE.  I process the EFS-04’s which are State Agency Client Reimbursement Forms.  Special education costs for state agency clients.

What do you like best about your job?

I enjoy working with all the school districts, getting to know them all.  My position requires quite a bit of research and organization which I truly enjoy.  I work with a great team that really cares.

How or why did you decide on this career?

I am here to serve.  I’ve worked in the service field for years, including working for the homeless shelter and animal shelter. I enjoy working for the greater good.

What do you like to do outside of work for fun?

My passion is gardening, planting, and maintaining flowers and vegetables.  I just love being outside with my two Labs, taking long walks in the woods behind my house.  At the moment I am teaching myself how to play the guitar.
