What do you enjoy about your job? What aspects of your job are the most exciting or interesting?
Every day brings a unique job experience.

Why did you choose to pursue an MPA/MPP degree?
I was working in the field of public administration (for the Association of Municipalities in the Czech Republic.) After having earned home degrees for economics and sociology, I found it natural to expand abroad.

How did you select your graduate school?
I was more than pleased to learn I had won a Hubert H. Humphrey Fellowship with I.I.E. and I would be sent to Seattle to study at the Daniel Evans School of Public Affairs. Retrospectively, I believe I could not have found a better option myself.

How do you feel your MPA/MPP is helping you to make a difference?
I gained more personal insight into another culture only to learn that the challenges of public life and their solutions are very similar, yet local - I mean to be taken locally, never imposed.

How would you characterize your personality?
* Persistent * Creative * Curious *
