Nola Barnes, Assistant Director of the General Services Division (GSD), was recently recognized by the Governor's Office for her long-term state service. Nola is celebrating her 30th anniversary with the State this month. She started working for the State as a front desk clerk in the Family Assistance Administration office within the Department of Economic Security in Eloy, Arizona. After serving in her initial role for a few years, she applied to be the staff assistant for the Administrator of the Office of Facilities Management. She was later promoted into the Administrator role and served in that role for years before moving over to the Department of Administration, where she became the General Manager for Building and Planning Services. Within a decade, she was promoted to Assistant Director, where she has served since 2015.
We are so thankful to Nola for dedicating her career to serving the citizens of Arizona and we are so grateful for her leadership and commitment to excellence. Congrats!
