I started employment with the US Citizenship and Immigration Service in April 2013. Prior to that, I spent nearly eight years as a contractor to USCIS. So I am approaching nearly 18 years of total time in some capacity with USCIS. In 2018, I was elected to my first term as president of AFGE Local 3928, a role I have been reelected to ever since and still proudly serve in today. Then, in 2022, I was elected as president of AFGE National Citizenship and Immigration Services Council 119.
