The Department of Public Safety’s (PSD) Deputy Director for Administration Melanie Martin and Human Resources Specialist Virginia Kemmerlin have taken Governor Green’s priority for health and wellness to heart. Starting with the PSD offices downtown, they have implemented a health and wellness program for their workplace called “Walk Healthy Wednesdays” that they are hoping to eventually expand to PSD offices statewide. They also take time to compile and email information on upcoming events that promote healthy activities going on in the community.
