Kimberly Dickerson, Deputy Compact Administrator, LA

"Kimberly Dickerson was hired this year as the new Deputy Compact Administrator for the State of Louisiana. Kimberly was very eager to learn the deputy compact administrator's role and did so quickly. Kimberly spent countless hours working overtime, without claiming overtime, to insure that her work was accurate and not wanting anything to go undone. She is very passionate about her new role and often receive positive written feedback from other state compact offices. She will go the extra mile to ensure that our ICJ youth are receiving appropriate supervision by staying in contact with our field staff weekly. Kimberly has developed agency guidelines and ticklers for herself and staff to ensure compliance with ICJ. Kimberly is truly an asset to the ICJ section and an outstanding employee with the Office of Juvenile Justice." - Angela Bridgewater, Commissioner, LA
