Amidst the COVID-19 worries and anxiety, here’s a little something different that will hopefully give a moment of distraction. We still continue to celebrate Women’s History Month, and as we close out the month, we wanted to feature one of the Wyoming Military Department’s (WYMD) state employees – Liliana Hernandez. Lily works for the WYMD as a civilian. She chose to work with the WYMD because she thought it was a great opportunity to learn and grow professionally. Her favorite part of working with the WYMD is working with the people.
“Too often we forget that we are all on the same team and have the same mission,” she says, ”I love learning about others and with others, and seeing a task or mission being completed as a team.”
I asked her several questions, not only about her working with the military department but also some unique ones as well to add a little personality.
