Working Remotely for the Foreign Service in Southern Oregon
Hi! Let me introduce myself. I’m a proud Advisory Board member with GlobalPDX. I love the idea of connecting with others who are interested in global affairs in any way, shape, or form! I’m breaking some barriers within the U.S. Department of State by being the first Foreign Service Officer to work remotely from Oregon! What’s that mean? It means that normally I serve overseas, in a U.S. Embassy or Consulate, but we have the opportunity /requirement to serve domestically from time to time and I found a way to work remotely from the beautiful town of Ashland, Oregon. That’s right, I have official government order to be based in Ashland, Oregon. My team is mostly in Washington, D.C. There are so many benefits to being able to serve remotely from Ashland, so I wrote this article that was featured in the Foreign Service Journal about some of the unexpected and continued benefits of my work here.
