Mary Beth Saldin
Mary Beth spent all but eight months of her 36 years of federal service with the Department of Veterans Affairs. She worked for the VA in Minneapolis, Honolulu and Denver and retired at the end of 2010 as the Director of the VA Health Administration Center. She has a passion for helping others understand their federal benefits and was able to apply that in her previous position managing worldwide healthcare benefit programs for VA beneficiaries. Mary Beth says her satisfaction came from speaking to beneficiaries and educating them on benefits they never knew they were eligible for. Now that she is retired, she is able to transfer that same passion to help federal employees understand their benefits and prepare for retirement. In her free time, Mary Beth enjoys reading, walking, traveling and spending time with her three grandsons.
