Washington's Disabilities Emphasis
I'm Shelly Lassiter and I am your Disability Special
Emphasis Program Manager (SEPM) on the Civil Rights Advisory Committee.
The main focus of the DEP state program manager is to provide focus on
issues such as employment, retention, promotion, training, career
development and advancement opportunities affecting disabled applicants
and employees in NRCS. As a member of the Civil Rights Advisory
Committee (CRAC), and as a Special Emphasis
Program Manager I will do my best to represent the disabled
persons in Washington State.
In my NRCS capacity,
I am currently a soil conservationist on the Ecological Sciences staff.
I started my SCS-NRCS career in Minnesota in 1983 where I served in 2
duty stations before moving to Washington in 1986. During my time in WA
I have had many great adventures and thoroughly enjoy my work.
