I appreciate that I am encouraged to challenge myself.

I get to do what I enjoy every day, which is creating content, but I also like that no two days are the same because of the diverse work we do as a team in the Office of Communications and Outreach. I also appreciate that I am encouraged to challenge myself and take part in professional development opportunities that will help me both as a state employee and as a person.
