Salsawit “Salsi” Mane – Regional Director of Career Services, Fairfax County – Arlington – Alexandria, VA

Salsi is Regional Director of Career Services, responsible for overseeing and managing WOU’s offices in the Prince George County of Maryland, District of Columbia, Northern Virginia and Harrisburg, PA. She also administers services to referrals from area governmental agencies and schools and manages supported employment, community learning and employment discovery services for DDA, VR and PGPS populations.

After joining WOU in 2008 as a Career Resource Specialist, Salsi was promoted to Team Leader in 2009 and again promoted to Director in January of 2011. A graduate of Lindsey Wilson College in Kentucky, she earned a BA in human services and counseling.

A true people person, Salsi enjoys working at WOU as it affords her the opportunity to not only help people, but learn from them, too. When she’s away from the office, she spends time with her two sons and husband, travels with a large group of friends and family, and rides her bicycle.
