During her first year, she was in charge of monthly bank reconciliations for various programs. The programs included all Cash accounts for grants funding, Customs Revenue collection, as well as the American Samoa Economic Development Authority (ASEDA) trust bank accounts. As a Grant Analyst, she was assigned two main grants funding belonging to the ASG Department of Education School Lunch Program and the ASG Governor's Office Medicaid Program.

She was appointed as the Department head for the Business department while at Fagaitua, during which she conducted college preparatory sessions to include college application awareness and training, Financial Aid (FAFSA), and Scholarship trainings. Her experience teaching business elective classes, hosting informative sessions on College Preparation and Career Fair prepared her better serve the American Samoa Government's Department of Treasury.
