What Does Life at DPH Look Like?

Kat White Quote

"After working in the private sector for more than 20 years, I wanted to work in a place where I can contribute to the greater good. Working with DPH has afforded me the flexibility and time to achieve a work-life balance while using my design skills. Good design can literally save lives."

Dr. Amanda Feldpausch Quote

"Working at DPH provided an opportunity to sustainably contribute to a community locally and a supportive and driven "family" of fellow epidemiologists. The day I entered DPH, I wasn't sure how the experience would fit into my future as a public health professional, but I found a home quickly and have a hard time picturing myself anywhere else.”

Maurice Redmond Quote

“[As part of DPH’s programs] for tourist accommodations, body art, and public swimming pool facilities, our goal is to help reduce risks and hazards associated with unsanitary conditions that may cause disease or injury to the public. Knowing that we play a part in moving public health forward makes my work meaningful.”
