After co-owning a courier service business with my father for five
years, I decided to make a career change. The environment is very
important to me, so working for the Department of Environmental
Protection was an easy choice, and its mission is one I proudly support.
I have worked in the revenue section at DEP for three and a half
years. My job involves supervising and assisting with recording the
receipt of funds from individuals, businesses, DEP program areas and
Florida State Parks. I also interact with our State Parks and program
areas daily to ensure their revenue is applied correctly.
Because I love working with numbers, every day is interesting. The
challenging issues and the interaction with our program areas are what I
enjoy most about my job. If asked what I like most about working at DEP,
I would have to say itís the people. At DEP I feel respected by both my
peers and my managers. My most memorable experiences since coming here
include witnessing our section pulling together as a team to get the
work done, whatever that may be.
Making the career move to DEP has offered me a structured lifestyle
and the ability to leave work at the office. I feel there is no better
family to work for than the DEP family.
