Beth Wilson
“As an agent, you are trained to give the best possible solution to a real-world problem. There's a lot of satisfaction in that. You are not micromanaged by a supervisor. You must be internally driven to provide information to residents of your county and to address issues vital to your own community."
-Beth Wilson, Pulaski County
