A typical day at the District consisted of monitoring and managing the finances of the District, meeting with financial advisers, lawyers, bankers and working on various projects that benefited the city and the tax payers. I learned the ends and outs of municipal finance and how a city operates with tax payer dollars. I learned how to work with large teams with people with various skills to complete large scale projects. Management was great and allowed me to grow and nurtured me as a finance professional. The workplace culture was like a family and the atmosphere of the was great. The hardest part of the job was the travel time and affordability of nearby housing. The most enjoyable part of the job was doing work that benefited the residents of DC and the future of their communities.
