County Tenure: 5 years • Department Tenure: 1 year
What I enjoy most about working for the County is that I am helping people who are just like me. In 2012, I applied for health insurance through the Department of Public Social Services (DPSS). An Eligibility Worker helped to process my case and kindly made sure that my family was aware of the benefits we were eligible to receive. I thought that if I was ever presented with an opportunity to give hope to someone the way this Eligibility Worker did for me, I would do so in a heartbeat. In 2013, that opportunity presented itself when I became an Eligibility Worker II.
