Congratulations to A’leesia McKinney for being selected as our August 2016 Interviewer of the Month! Ms. McKinney’s supervisors appreciate her positive attitude and willingness to help wherever needed.
A’leesia enjoys interviewing people by phone because she loves talking and listening to people. One of the projects A’leesia enjoyed collecting data for was for the Division of Behavioral Health and Recovery, adding “MHCS was my favorite project because I was able to work on my communication skills, I had to speak with a range of people, and I had to be able to communicate in a way that was effective towards the goal of completing a valuable interview.”
Upon graduating from Washington State University, A’leesia plans on working in a public relations firm in the Seattle, Washington area. Eventually, A’leesia would like to combine her personal story with her communication skills to do motivational speaking. “I feel that my experiences and struggles in college will be able to inspire and encourage someone to follow their dreams even when the road is not always smooth.”
Congratulations again, A’leesia and thank you for all your hard work and dedication!
