Streamline - Spring 2013 - (Page 39)

Fresh Faces Happy To Join The Team! BY KAY FORSHEY, OFFICE SUPPORT/ADMINISTRATIVE ASSISTANT I WOULD LIKE to take a few moments to introduce myself. As the new Office Support/ Administrative Assistant, I will be based in the Buena Vista office. A little about myself: I am originally from Pennsylvania and have lived in Virginia for more than five years. I still have many family members scattered throughout the state of Pennsylvania. The Shenandoah Valley is one of the most beautiful areas in Virginia and I absolutely love it here! My professional background includes extensive business, computer and technology experience, primarily in the education field. I am very excited to be working for VRWA! It is a professional environment and I am quickly learning the many aspects of the association. I look forward to meeting everyone at Conference. If there is any way we can assist you, please feel free to contact us at 540-261-7178. Hope to See You Soon BY TRACY PUCKETT, WATER CIRCUIT RIDER II HELLO, MY NAME is Tracy Puckett. I am the new Water Circuit Rider II for VRWA. I am a resident of Washington County in southwest Virginia. I have lived there all my life. Over the last several years, I have been involved in drinking water. I have worked in water treatment as well as operations and maintenance. I was employed for a total of ten years for the Castlewood Water and Sewage Authority, with the past five years spent as the Operations Manager. I am looking forward to working with VRWA and visiting as well as assisting your utilities across the state in the upcoming year. Hope to see you soon. 39
