“I love how HHS is there to support and help the public; to keep them safe. I prefer HHS over the private sector because the focus isn’t on making money. It’s about helping our citizens — researching what we can — to help them be the best they can.”

— Tonya McGee, Administrative Assistant, Federal Drug Administration

“I’m a caretaker type of personality. I know I don’t have the heart or stomach to do the work that nurses do. I’m not scientific enough to find the cure for cancer. But supporting the people who do that work is what matters. I can buy the beaker. I can make sure you know what to expect with work overseas. I love participating in something bigger that will help improve the world overall.”
