My name is Jamicia Davidson and I’m a program specialist within the Postal Inspection Service’s Communications, Governance and Strategy group in Washington, DC. I help protect the agency’s brand, including processing requests to use its logo and trademarked artwork on brochures, promotional products and other items.
Additionally, I grant Inspection Service employees access to the investigative tools they need to work on their cases.
I don’t carry a weapon or arrest anyone, but I support those who do so in their work to protect the Postal Service and its employees and customers. The different crime prevention campaigns I work on help reaffirm the public’s trust in us and help promote brand awareness.
I began my career with the Postal Service in 2002 as a casual mail handler for the holiday season. I then became a letter carrier in Alexandra, VA, in 2004, and since then I have held a variety of positions with an increasing level of responsibility, including Postmaster relief in Arkansas. I’ve also served as an executive assistant to two vice presidents at USPS headquarters in Washington, DC. My various jobs have given me a unique understanding of the organization.
What I enjoy about USPS and the Inspection Service is the number of available job opportunities. Whatever your background or passion is, you can probably do it here.
Since joining the Inspection Service in 2016, I’ve seen the organization become more focused on growing its online presence. There’s a redesigned external website and we have an increased presence on social media. The Inspection Service is changing with the times and using these platforms to raise awareness of the work we do.
When I leave work, my next full-time job begins — being a mom to my two daughters, ages 7 and 9, as well as a wife to my husband of 11 years. I love doing arts and crafts with my girls, like creating floral arrangements, painting and redecorating old items to give them new life.
I also like to decorate my workplace for the holidays and special occasions. Sometimes adding a pop of color along with an inspirational quote is all you need to help brighten the day.
