I had the opportunity to interview Charles Karnella, Assistant Regional Administrator of International Fisheries (IF) at NOAA. Charles is an extremely busy man and it took me awhile to get “fit” into his schedule. He travels quite a bit, which is why I was interested in interviewing him because I also love to travel. Now here I am sitting in Charles’ office with a view of the beautiful Oahu landscape. It’s a delightful day with a temperature of about 85 degrees, and the sun shimmering down brightly. He is friendly and open so I enjoy his company immediately. He starts off by telling me that he has been employed with NOAA for over 30 years…WOW! I am impressed and feel that I am sitting in the presence of a wealth of knowledge. Charles has worked in several different capacities within NOAA and in several different cities. He has been in Hawaii since 1997. Charles named Nancy Foster as one of the persons that have had a lasting impact of him as a leader. She was the NOAA Protected Resources Director. He feels that he learned a lot about management style from her and that gave him a greater appreciation of his people. Charles said that “As a leader you must look out for the well-being of your people. You must ensure that your people have whatever resources they need to be successful in their jobs”. He felt that the most important decision a leader could make is to “do the right thing”. A leader must maintain their integrity and resist the pressure to ‘go with the flow’. He also felt that he had experienced bullying but he learned from Nancy how to interact with bullies. When asked how he would help new employees understand NOAA’s culture, he emphasize that since NOAA was a science based organization we do things that regulate the public and being part of a science oriented organization, we have to make sure that our decisions are founded in…...

...Interview 1: 1. Her favorite pair of jeans are made by Rockin’ Revival. She likes them because they have a lot for detailing (very thick, typically vibrant stitching) which she finds to be both fun and less work because she does not have to accessorize. 2. Some challenges run into while jeans shopping would be dealing with her “motherly shape”, which says is a little bit of tummy (so fitting in the waist), as well as fitting in the butt which also bigger. 3. Levi’s were the classic brand from when I was younger, so I own a lot of pairs of those from my 20’s and early 30’s however they do not fit the mommy shape. Because they no longer cater towards her size she started to look at other brands and found that Rockin’ Republic made jeans that fit her “bigger areas” perfectly. 4. Nordstrom Rack, Buckle and Maurice’s are her favorite stores. Because they both carry the brand and style of jeans that she likes (thick stitching kind of glamy jeans). Plus, Nordstrom has some great jean sales and Nordstrom Rack carries discounted brands. 5. Light wash boot cut Silver jeans which fit all of her jean requirements, such as accommodating her larger waist but still fits snugly on the thighs. And a pair of dark cobalt blue flare legged jeans from Maurices that also have detailing (i.e. bedazzling) and very comfy for everyday wear. 6. The ones from Maurcies were $30, while the silver jeans were about $65. Yes it is typical for her, she typically spends no more......

He adds that corruption has a lot to do with what happens at the factories, and that a check can be the solution for everything. All in all, it was extremely interesting to interview Ankit.

...Macy Walker HRM 424 Interview #1 Interview of Clinic Supervisor For my first interview I decided to interview Lacey Wilson, a nurse turned clinic supervisor of OMC Primary Care Clinic located in Port Angeles. I chose to interview her because my mother is a PA (Physician’s Assistant) there and I have also worked at the clinic since 2013 in the call center, so I am familiar with a lot of the staff including Lacey. I have always found it interesting that as a nurse she chose to take the turn towards management and I was very curious to find out why. During the interview we discussed many things including her current and past roles, what training she has had to help her do her job more effectively, and how experiences outside her job have helped her progress as well. Lacey graduated from UW nursing school in 2000 with a BSN (Bachelors of Science in Nursing) and has basically been with the clinic ever since. She started working with Primary Care in 2001 as a float nurse but was soon assigned to a team (at Primary Care there are four “teams”: Central, East, Cherry, and Sequim, each with their own doctors and one nurse). Not long after Lacey was assigned to a team she became the lead nurse, who is essentially responsible for all the other nurses working at the clinic. Lacey said working as a team nurse gave her experience with managing a small team of employees, including conflict management, time management, and customer service. Over the years Lacey has also been......
