Nola Tolsma Events Associate Manager

Nola Tolsma helps to plan and execute signature programs and events, including the Samuel J. Heyman Service to America Medals, Public Service Recognition Week and the Best Places to Work in the Federal Government® awards, each of which works to spotlight and share the outstanding dedication of federal employees and workplaces. Her study of political science provided her with a deep respect and admiration for public servants; this, coupled with her previous work in non-profits, led her to the Partnership for Public Service. Nola is inspired by Frances Perkins, the first female Cabinet member, who advocated for workers rights and gender equality in the 1930’s.
