Washington, D.C. – U.S. Senator Susan Collins announced that Val Kapothanasis, a Westbrook native, has been awarded a returning worker fellowship in her Portland office.  Senator Collins’ Returning Worker Fellowship provides an opportunity for Mainers to gain experience working in a U.S. Senate office.

Val graduated from the University of Arizona, where she studied Management Information Systems, and she has spent more than two decades as a stay-at-home mom.

“I’m delighted to have Val join the Returning Worker Fellowship program in my Portland office,” Senator Collins said. “Her dedication to her family demonstrates the kind of commitment and work ethic that is essential to succeed, and I know she will provide excellent constituent service to her fellow Mainers.”

Returning worker fellows are tasked with performing constituent casework, managing correspondence, and assisting with the administrative functions of the office.
