“I am now thinking more statewide”

Jessica Ward has worked for the state for nearly six years and comes to Results Washington from the Washington State Department of Social and Health Services Background Check Central Unit.  She has earned her Lean Six Sigma Green Belt and is certified in Lean facilitation. Jessica enjoys working with people and wants to make sure that she can continue to make a difference to vulnerable citizens, and she is excited to provide support to the five goal councils.

“I am now thinking more statewide,” said Jessica about how she wants to connect with agency partners as Lean Fellow. “I am looking forward to thinking about the big picture, versus what directly affects me or my program,” she said.

She wants to see that front-line staff members and every other employee feels they have the opportunity to have a voice, suggest ideas for change and make improvements in their daily work.

Jessica has an adventurous side, she likes to travel and explore new places. She also enjoys reading a variety of books from different genres, working out and playing first base for co-ed softball, which she has been doing for the last ten years.
