When did you start working with WAPA? I started working at WAPA in September 1999.
What is the most interesting thing you have worked on at WAPA? I can't say there is just one thing, but I have worked with some of the best folks. Any project I am part of, the best part about it is the people I'm working with.
What do you wish people understood about your job and the work you do? What I wish people understood about my current position is that things are changing at a rapid pace. If we work and communicate with each other we will find ways to learn and grow as a team!
Tell us something about yourself we wouldn't find on your resume. I'm a very family-oriented person.
How is what you do tied to WAPA's mission? The Settlements team tracks, records, invoices and provides reports for all transactions so we can continue to provide reliable, cost-based federal hydroelectric power and related services to our customers.
