Early on in my career, Berkeley County allowed me the opportunity to grow by gaining knowledge, earning certifications and advancing into a Plans Examiner position. I thoroughly enjoy reviewing plans for code compliance and working with staff and mentors that I have had along the way.
I learned about the Berkeley County Day Report Center through a close friend, and soon after, I started working as a Drug Screening Technician. My role at DRC is a daily reminder of the gift of my sobriety, and allows me to serve my community. Working for the county has taught me integrity and professionalism, and motivates me to set high goals for my future.
I’ve always wanted my career to have a positive impact on other people’s lives. The people I work with are extremely passionate about helping others, as well as supporting one another in the work that we do. I feel so lucky to be able to do what I love and to have the opportunity to see our clients grow and succeed throughout their time in the program.
Working for the Department of Emergency Communications allows me to be close to home with my young children and the opportunity for growth. First hired as a dispatcher, I was attracted to having a job where I would be helping the community where I live. I work with a great team – it’s really a family here.”
What attracts me to this position and why I like working for Berkeley County is the steady growth and development that I am able to witness and be a part of in the Berkeley County Planning Department. My life’s work to date has been about growth and development, both with people, and now community.
