Going into Government?

Does a career in identity theft prevention or domestic environmental policymaking sound appealing? If so, then the next Professionals-in-Residence lecture may be perfect for you.

The Salisbury Center for Career Services will host two government employees from different fields to deliver a joint Professionals-in-Residence lecture, titled “Working in Government” at 7 p.m. on Thursday, March 5  in Coxe 7. The speakers are Monifa “Mo” Hamilton, United States Postal Service postal inspector, and Elizabeth “Betsy” Orlando, International Affairs Officer in the U.S. Department of State’s Office of Environmental Affairs.

As a postal inspector in the D.C. Metro area, Hamilton works on identity theft, revenue fraud and technical cases. Prior to joining the USPS, Hamilton was a state trooper with the Virginia State Police and was selected to work during the September 11th attacks at the Pentagon and oversee the Governor’s response to the D.C. sniper attacks.

In her role at the Department of State, Orlando is focused on domestic policy, managing a variety of environmental impact studies. Since 1992, she has been a member of the Foreign Service, traveling to more than 160 countries in various roles with the Department of State. Prior to her career in government, Orlando worked as a law clerk, mediator and court advocate.
