I respond to various inquiries from constituents regarding their child support cases as well as state agencies seeking technical, policy, and legislative assistance regarding the operation of their program.
I act as a liaison for child support matters involving the Social Securtity Administration and the Department of Veteran Affairs. In this capacity I have learned the importance of collaboration and effective planning and communication. Developing partnerships and collaborations serves as both the hardest and most enjoyable part of this job. Organizations often have competing missions for the same population. Bridging the differences can be difficult but extremely gratifying when they occur.
