May: Vicki Wakeland is Employee of the Month
Comptroller's Office Employee of the Month for May 2013.
A longtime City worker has been named our Employee of the month for May 2013. Victoria Wakeland works as an Administrative Assistant I. She's located in the Administrative, Personnel & Contract Administration department at 1520 Market Street.
Victoria (also known as Vicki, Vic or Ms. Vicki) has worked for the City for 38 years! She's held her current position since December 1998. In this role, she provides administrative support and staff reporting for the Chief Staff Officer. Duties performed increase the Chief Staff Officer's time for effective management of departmental affairs and policy decisions. Vicki has a strong background in human resources and efficient coordination of special projects. In addition to her responsibilities for the Chief Staff Officer, she serves as backup for the Secretary to the Board of E&A and for the Executive Secretary in the Internal Audit/Federal Grants Section.
She says the best part of her job is "making sure that my supervisor wants for nothing and assisting employees and managers when they are in need of assistance or information."
When she's not hard at work, Vicki enjoys gardening, reading, weekend getaways and spending time with her daughters and grand-daughters.
Way to go, Vicki!
