Senior Assessment Specialist Irene Joseph can’t believe her part-time position with Los Alamos County in August 1978 turned into permanent employment spanning three decades.
Joseph, 69, expressed mixed feelings about her upcoming retirement during an interview at the County Assessor’s Office.
“I’m starting to get nervous. I’ve been telling people I don’t know what I’m going to do with myself,” Joseph said. “My last day of work is Monday, although I officially retire Dec. 31. It’ll be a big change.”
