What is the most exciting part of your career at FERC?

“I love the diversity, growth opportunity and work/life balance that the Commission provides. FERC is a place where we embrace all cultures and interest with various work groups such as "Women Empowering Women" and activities such as the "Hispanic Heritage Month" celebration. Also, we have a leadership team that encourages continuous learning and personal and professional development.”

What is your favorite part of your job?

“My favorite part of my job is developing employees through opportunities that will enhance them professionally as well as personally. We offer programs such as the Student Loan Repayment Program, Leadership Development Program and extensive training opportunities. I manage the Foundations of Leadership Program which is a leadership development program designed for employees GS-12 and below.”

Tell us about the projects you are currently working on?

“I am currently working with other HR Specialists on recruiting and onboarding new staff in various positions such as Energy Industry Analyst and Civil Engineers. I attend various career fairs throughout the year looking for potential candidates. Once candidates are selected, I manage the New Employee Orientation where employees learn about FERC, federal compensation and benefits and how to successfully transition into their new position.”

What do you enjoy about working for the Commission?

“My favorite part about working at the Commission is the comradery, Esprit de corps, and family atmosphere we have. I enjoy working with my colleagues who are experts in the Paperwork Reduction Act for compliance with Information Collection Requirements. Their expertise makes a complex, demanding, intense job appear easy and enjoyable. We work extremely hard here at FERC but we have fun while accomplishing our mission.”

Tell us about the projects you are currently working on?

“The Information Collection Team works on multiple projects daily. We focus on NOPRs, Final Rules, Renewal of data collections, Paperwork Reduction Act (PRA), and the posting and recordkeeping requirements that FERC places on the industry. My current project that I'm working is a NOPR, Supporting Statement, and collection renewal for upcoming Commission meetings.”

FERC is a small agency with dedicated professional employees who work hard and play harder. FERC is an excellent place to work and I am honored to be a member of the FERC family.”
