The work PSCI consultants are able to accomplish helps not only us but more importantly our clients persevere and prosper. That's why we like to focus on them. This month, we shine the spotlight on one of our latest hires, Kathy Szczesny! Kathy is a Front-End/WordPress Developer currently on contract with the Delaware Government Information Center.

Let's take a moment to learn more about her in this month's Fast Five.
1. What was your first paying job? 
My first paying job was as a Dishwasher/Bus Girl at Eli Family Restaurant in Ohio.
 
2. Favorite weekend hobby? 
Adding to my family tree on ancestry.com.

3. What was your favorite TV show when growing up? 
My favorite TV show when growing up was Eight is Enough.
4. If you could go anywhere in the world on vacation, where would you go?

5. What separates PSCI from other consulting firms you've worked with? 
Trust. I've declined to work with other consulting firms because they treated me like a commodity and not a human being. PSCI from the beginning established a foundation of trust which made me feel confident that I was joining a team of professionals who cared and who had my best interest at heart.

Mark Your Calendars


We understand how quickly schedules can fill up, that's why we wanted to give you plenty of notice for events we'll be sponsoring (in-person!) this Fall, so that you can mark your calendars.

On Thursday, September 30, we'll be sponsors at the Delaware Public Purchasing Association Conference and Vendor Expo in Wilmington, DE. This event promises an excellent opportunity to network with procurement professionals from Delaware, Pennsylvania, Maryland, DC, and Virginia.
 
Then, on Thursday, October 28, we'll once again be sponsoring the Secure Delaware 2021 Conference at the Chase Center on the Riverfront, in Wilmington, DE. Here, attendees can meet, network with, and learn from top cybersecurity experts.

We'll be sure to pass along additional information as these events get closer.

A Spotlight on Mental Health

 
PSCI utilizes the services of Creative Benefits to assist with the intricacies of benefits administration. As part of their outreach, they've put forth a Mental Health Campaign to increase mental health awareness and provide mental health education.

We are using this space to deliver those campaigns to you!
