Andrea Kerbuski

Fresh from the windy city, I’ve returned to one of my favorite places: Lansing, a place I called home during my four years at Michigan State University and three years as a young professional. I’m back and am now the Chief Communications Officer at Capital Area Michigan Works!, a government workforce development agency located close to downtown Lansing.
From developing marketing strategies to managing community outreach efforts to engaging in social media outreach, I’m never in a routine, but a fast-paced environment where the work I do varies each day. And that’s the way I prefer it.
You can also find me traipsing around Lansing with a ridiculous outfit and my Nikon D700 as I’m also a fashion blogger, highlighting my style through photos and utilizing great spots in Lansing as my back drop.

Michael E. King

The job entails gathering information and data about a public policy issue, analyzing the data, and writing a report on how the issue affects the State of Michigan.  When applicable, recommendations as to what the state should do regarding the issue are included in the report.  I am interested in learning about the effects of public policies and communicating that knowledge to interested citizens and legislators.  I applied for this fellowship twice and was awarded the fellowship last spring.  I enjoy working in downtown Lansing and being a part of a knowledgeable team of researchers who care about the state and strive to make it better.

Paul B.A. Holland

I work primarily on financial issues affecting the Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs for the Michigan House of Representatives, serving each of the 110 Representatives as a source of nonpartisan and object information. Day-to-day duties include researching fiscal impacts of proposed legislation, analyzing the history and effects of state policies, and assisting the House Appropriation Committee with the development of the state budget. I am passionate about my job because it incorporates impartial policy research with actual policy implications.

I basically use policy and procedure to determine which applicants are eligible for which programs funded by the state and federal government. I determine eligibility for Food Assistance, Medicaid (medical coverage), Child Daycare, and State Disability Assistance (cash and medical coverage for individuals that are disabled from working for more than 90 days). I love that I have a job in Michigan’s economy and I love my job because I get to live my passion everyday, which is helping people become better! I chose this job because it is most definitely a stepping-stone to continue to use my passion for helping the disadvantaged!

Kimberly Mathiot

I am responsible for editing all items and documentation associated with Michigan standards-based assessment for K-12 students throughout the state. I also work on other publications, wherever I am needed, to make sure that the copy we are distributing is accurate and valid for the purpose it is intended. I have been in education for the past 17 years, and have worn a variety of hats – as a high school teacher, a researcher, a data analyst, consultant, and a provider of professional development. This job is a good fit for me, because of the requirement to understand state assessments, which I am very well-acquainted with, and also some knowledge of desk-top publishing and graphic arts. My undergraduate degree was in Computer Graphics and I have taught graphic design on the community college level. I found my job on the State government website, and applied for it in March. I got the call for the 1st interview in May, when I had mostly forgotten about the application. I was getting pretty discouraged at this point, so everything worked out for the best. I like my job, because I have the potential to impact educational reform on the policy level, and it is one of my goals to make the assessments and documents we produce as easy to read, consistent and efficient for the end-user as  possible.

I am coordinating Transportation for Michigan, a new statewide coalition that seeks to make Michigan communities more livable and our economy more robust through transportation policy reform. In this economy, communities that have safe, affordable, attractive options for getting around are the same communities that attract a talented workforce. I am excited about this opportunity to help communities across the state become more walkable and transit-friendly.

Lonias Gilmore

I serve as the training and social marketing coordinator for Michigan's Nutrition, Physical Activity and Obesity Program. My objectives are to develop, implement and monitor the annual training plan for the Program and oversee its system for disseminating program information to state and local partners. The most exciting aspect of joining this team, and the reason that this position was attractive to me in the first place, is that the ultimate goal is to ensure that Michigan is a recognized leader and expert in the field of Obesity Prevention. I am passionate about improving the health of the public. My desire to help promote health equity is the reason I began work on my graduate degree in Public Health, and my research interest has been focused on this subject for the past four years. This position offers me the opportunity to demonstrate the advantages of policy change and to help create environments in which people can lead healthier lives.
I learned about this position when a friend of mine recommended that I expand my job search to Michigan, and I ventured to the Michigan Civil Service Commission website. I would like to offer a tip to people interested in employment with the State of Michigan, and it is a simple one. The Michigan Civil Service Commission website offers potential applicants the opportunity to complete "Job Interest Cards". A "Job Interest Card" profile lets you choose job categories for which you receive email notifications. MDCH, in particular, recommends this program to those interested.
