Legal Administrative Specialist
July 1967 to February 2008
I am eager to join your office and I am a quick learner. I have gained much office experience working for FBI Headquarters for a number of years as a paralegal specialist, etc., as stated in my resume. I would be most appreciative for an interview. Please do not be concerned about my resume and think I am over qualified. I am retired and am in need of being with the people and need the extra money. Thanks.

FBI Entered on Duty (EOD) Date: 7/5/1967. (FBI had been my only employer.) Retired 2/28/2008
Former Employer: FBI 935 Pennsylvania Avenue, NW, Washington, DC 20535
Former Position: Legal Administrative Specialist and Paralegal Specialist
I worked full-time in the Records Management Division as a Legal Administrative Specialist (position title has been periodically changed). Previously, the first 9 years of my career were with the former Identification Division. My last position there was as an Assistant Supervisor in the former Fingerprint Correspondence Section, Identification Division.
Since April 25, 1977, I had held various positions in Records Management Division (RMD), including reviewing FBI files for release to the public pursuant to the Freedom of Information/Privacy Acts and researching and writing declarations for filing in U.S. District Court in response to FOIPA requests that conclude in litigation. The files reviewed consisted of the full spectrum of FBI files, from the oldest to the newest, applicant background investigations to foreign counterintelligence investigations. Also, while assigned to this position, I have had the opportunity to become familiar with some of the operations of most of the other divisions of the FBI. I have computer experience on WordPerfect, which is what we used at the FBI, also MS Word and Outlook, which I have at home.
I was lastly assigned to the RMD, Records Information and Dissemination Section in Classification Unit #3. This unit reviews historical FBI files, pursuant to the guidelines of Executive Order 12958, as amended, for ultimate transfer to the National Archives and Records Administration. I have been assigned to this unit for well over two years. This unit was previously the Historical Evaluation and Review Unit (HERU) whose members reviewed the JFK files for release to National Archives and Records Administration, mentioned below.
I have also worked on special assignments, various projects, including, but not limited to:
1-Reviewing Special Agent Career Board material in response to a litigation instituted by minority Special Agents
2-Review and oversight of JFK Assassination files reviewed for release to the NARA. I was a team leader during most of this assignment. In this position, I also reviewed FBI information contained in the US Senate Intelligence Committee at their offices.
3-I have also been on special assignments with the Strategic Operations and Intelligence Center, including the terrorist attacks on 9/11/01 and the DC Sniper investigations.
My whole working career has been with the FBI. It has truly been a rewarding career.
I also volunteered with the Polycystic Kidney Disease (PKD) Foundation. From 2001 to 2004, I have had the pleasure of being the local Chapter Coordinator for the DC area and then as a national headquarters volunteer officer with the Chapter Advisory Committee (CAC) of the PKD Foundation, which governed the local PKD Foundation Chapters. Duties at the local level included the support of others with PKD, education, public awareness of PKD and fund-raising for research to find a cure for the most common genetic disease in the world. During my term with the CAC of the PKD Foundation, my fellow members and I revised the bylaws of the local chapters, not an easy task. During this term, I also was an ad-hoc committee member of the Governmental Relations Committee of the Board of Trustees of the PKD Foundation.
Also in the past years, I have been volunteering with the Johns Hopkins Hospital (JHH) Comprehensive Transplant Center (CTC) Outreach Program. I am a certified transplant mentor for new transplant patients and candidates at Johns Hopkins Hospital and currently have 6 mentees. I am also am a member of the Transplant Patients Committee at JHH, which addresses patient issues, helps the JHH CTC staff with a yearly conference for pre and post transplant patients, their donors and caregivers and evening seminars. We also plan fun events such as the Annual Picnic and the Holiday Party.
