From clerk typist to SES, Gonzales retires from DLA Distribution with 40 years of federal service
NEW CUMBERLAND, Pa. —
Over 40 years ago, while still in college, Twila Coleen Gonzales, Senior Executive Service, embarked on a remarkable journey. The journey began in her native state, California, with her first federal position as a GS-01 clerk typist at the former Sharpe Army Depot — now part of Defense Logistics Agency Distribution San Joaquin, California. Gonzales rose through the ranks from clerk typist, concluding her 40 year federal career at the SES level as deputy commander of DLA Distribution.
