Marvin Andrews Scholarship Winner

Where are you originally from?
Phoenix, AZ born and raised.

Why did you decide to pursue a career in local government?
I was introduced into public service when I joined the Mesa Police Explorers and the Arizona State University Police Department. From then on I knew that serving the community was my calling. After being introduced to the MPA program at ASU I felt that I can serve the community better from the management side.

What do you like most about your job?
I look forward to the ever changing challenges. No two problems are exactly the same and good managers have to adapt and learn from each challenge.

What areas of local government interest you the most?
I am very interested in budgeting and public safety as well as how managers and their assistant managers work together.

As a local government professional, what accomplishment are you most proud of?
I am just about to begin my summer internship at Oro Valley, however I am very proud and honored to be 2009 Marvin Andrews Scholarship recipient.

What are your hobbies?
I enjoy reading, horseback riding, camping and my weekly Texas Hold'em poker game with my coworkers.
