What do you enjoy about your job? What aspects of your job are the most exciting or interesting?
I enjoy the interaction and exchanges that takes place with the clients for requirements gathering and then documenting and translating it in a clear and succinct manner for others to read and understand.

Why did you choose to pursue an MPA/MPP degree?
I found Public Policy to be can interesting mix of Economics, Political Science and Sociology...a combination perfect for the someone planning on staying and working in the DC/Metropolitan area, which I consider to be the hub of the political world.

How did you select your graduate school?
[I chose] the School of Public Policy at George Mason University [because it] offered a comprehensive and well-rounded program, in addition to its accessibility to Washington, D.C. This not only meant a better exposure to the field of Public Policy, but also access to a faculty that would expose me to most current analysis with a course work more in touch with the real world than just theory.

How do you feel your MPA/MPP is helping you to make a difference?
* Team worker * Compassionate * Persistent * Organized * Committed * Flexible * Curious * Detail-oriented * Independent * Analytical * Service-oriented *

How would you characterize your personality?
* Team worker * Good under pressure * Compassionate * Persistent * Organized * Committed * Flexible * * Fast-paced * Curious * Detail-oriented * Independent * Diplomatic * Courageous * Analytical *
