Albuquerque – Samantha Gorbet, Civil Engineer with the North Area Office in Santa Fe, NM. Samantha has been selected as the NMEOM for June 2020.  Samantha worked outside of her normal duties to develop a YouTube video, test that video, and then shared it with all New Mexico staff.  She was proactive regarding working remotely during the COVID-19 pandemic.  She took it upon herself to learn the new Microsoft Teams video communications program. She also assisted the North Area Conservationist with successfully setting up a TEAMs meeting with North Area Staff.

As a result of Samantha’s efforts, NRCS New Mexico can more effectively communicate statewide using Microsoft Teams, especially during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Samantha Gorbet has received the award for her achievement and recognition.
