Candidate Statement: While employed at AT&T/Lucent and the Courier Journal my main focus was customer service. Working together with my team and the client’s team to implement the installation of telecommunications equipment and software upgrades. This involved an understanding of the client’s business needs, the needs of team members and working together to complete the project. Working at the library I have learned a lot about the needs of our patrons and conditions present in the community. I am a team player and the knowledge and experience I gained in my career journey as well as being on the NineStar board for the past three years, has help me develop an understanding of the needs and expectations of our community and has helped me make informed decisions for the direction of NineStar Connect. I am eager to continue to serve the people in our community.
