Why Do I Do What I Do?
I get personal satisfaction in helping clients during stressful times by finding a solution to a problem, answering a question, or providing resources and information. My job allows me to have a positive impact on people’s lives and make a difference. Every day is different, from the planning and details to the connection with my co-workers and interaction with court staff.
