Tania Leisten, Directorate of Public Works

 

Ms. Leisten exceeded the outstanding candidates that had received recognition as Civilians of the Month, with the most significant impact to the U.S. Army Garrison Presidio of Monterey. Ms. Leisten's remarkable work to complete the mission-essential compliance duties of the four vacant positions has also prevented the receipt of costly environmental fines/litigation (potentially hundreds of thousands of dollars) which would have to be paid by the command operating budget, exacerbating the already critical garrison funding shortfall. Ms. Leisten's selfless service, professionalism, extraordinary performance, and unwavering commitment to the mission are truly noteworthy and set the standard for others to emulate.
