Public Service My Calling To Fulfill

By Yolanda Triplett

Today’s 13% post comes to you from Yolanda Triplett who is the Program Development Supervisor for the Division of Building Safety in Orange County Florida. Yolanda’s customer centric position provides oversight for the reception area, contractor licensing, online services, and the telephone call center and division outreach.

“Citizen Service is the very American idea that we meet
our challenges not as isolated individuals but as members of
a true community, with all of us working together. Our mission
is nothing less than to spark a renewed sense of obligation,
a new sense of duty, a new season of service.”
– William Jefferson Clinton, 42nd President of the United States

The 28th day of July in the year of 1998, I embarked on this journey called public service. I liken my career as a public administrator with the Division of Building Safety, in Orlando, Florida to a journey because it has definitely taken me places both personally and professionally. Serving the public in an industry that is dominated by males; I have learned valuable lessons and earned the respect of those whom I serve along with daily. I recognize the work that I do as public service and it is my calling to fulfill.

For seventeen years, I have had the pleasure of serving the public with their building permits and inspections needs. I love to share with people who I work in a place where we help citizens and those in the construction industry go from “dirt to dollars”! The core mission of the Division of Building Safety is to ensure that buildings are built safely according to state and local codes. Citizens and design professionals start a process with a plan on paper and finish the process with a structure that they will utilize for living, working, or playing in our community. As a proud public servant, I assist those on the building and construction journey with navigating the process. continue reading here
