March 2020 Employee of the Month

Julie Carey has been chosen as the Department of Public Safety March 2020 Non-Sworn Employee of the Month for her tremendous organizational skills and dedication to her work in the Division of Fire Safety’s Boiler and Pressure Vessel Safety Unit.

Julie is constantly looking for ways to improve services and streamline processes, despite her incredibly full and varied portfolio of responsibilities. She is a Senior Office Support Assistant and has been with DFS for four and a half years.

Julie’s responsibilities includes handling all administrative aspects of boiler and pressure vessel installation permits, operating certificates, violations and invoices. She also handles all variance requests for the Board of Boiler and Pressure Vessel Rules, along with incoming phone calls and emails. In addition, she is currently helping familiarize the program’s new deputy chief with the accounting and administrative functions of the online data system.

Julie’s position requires dealing with returned billing invoices, incomplete permit information and countless questions from the public. Instead of becoming frustrated, she is constantly finding ways to make processes more efficient and cost effective. She works tirelessly on customer service calls, while simultaneously balancing these duties with supporting field staff with vital information.

For years, satisfied customers have called and written to express how wonderful it is to work with Julie. One satisfied customer recently wrote, “Julie Carey was very helpful, courteous and professional. Any organization would benefit by having employees like her on their team.”

We could not have said it better! Thank you, Julie, for your outstanding work of behalf of the people you serve and the tremendous example you set for team members throughout the Department of Public Safety.
