Great place to work, good support system
Prevention Program Manager, Ketchikan, AK - May 20, 2015
My supervisor(s) were there for me even though my office was in a different town than they were and in Alaska that meant a plane ride to see each other. They were supportive, caring, answered questions, and stood behind me and my decisions.

There weren't really typical days. A lot of my time was spent out of the office networking with the people in the town. I joined a lot of task forces to work with the people I needed to for the grant that I was working on as well as to help them with what they were working on.

The hardest part of the job was getting people who didn't work well together in the past to work together now. To not just work in their own interests but in the interest of the overall cause. Even though their "cause" may technically be different it was to help them see that they were all interconnected and we could do more together than any one of us could do alone.

The most enjoyable part is when that succeeded even in little ways. The best thing of all was the bringing of The Green Dot Program to the town. The creator came to teach 30 of us. I take a bit of satisfaction in that it is still happening there too. I learned so much in this program that it by itself was worth everything.

My co-workers were awesome, they were actually in different fields than I but we all ended up working together so the true form of what I was working toward for the community happened in my work place. It was fantastic.

The absolute worst part was that the grant ended so the job did as well. It was hard on many of us.
