Cari Morgan Tretina
Life is more manageable once it’s categorized and simplified:
Elevator speech: I’m currently a Budget Analyst for the County of Henrico. My short-term career goal is to learn as much as I possibly can; my long-term goal is to inspire and impact the world. To accomplish these goals, I want to interact with as many people I can, see all there is to see, and help connect the dots to solve problems.
Education: Double major- political science and public relations from Eastern Kentucky University in May 2013.
Interests: Writing, research, legislative process, politics, economics, civil liberties, community welfare, and the complexities of human behavior.
Books/Authors: Non-fiction, specifically current events and government affairs. Thomas Friedman, Fareed Zakaria, Robert Putnam, and Malcom Gladwell are all favorites.
Influences: Alice Paul, George Washington, Winston Churchill, Harvey Milk, and the potential of my future.
Superfluous information: Born leader, fast learner, critical thinker, confident, determined, outgoing, and willing.
Simply put, smart people use their intelligence to advance themselves; brilliant people use their intelligence to advance the world.
