Iconic singer and actress Helen Reddy’s song “I Am Woman” was her first number one record. The song won the Best Pop Vocal Performance Female GRAMMY in 1972, and remains a powerful feminist movement anthem. In addition to splitting her time between touring, film and television work, Reddy is also active in community affairs, and has served as Commissioner of Parks and Recreation for the State of California.

Nicolosi graduated from the University of Iowa College of Dentistry. Although he has been painting his entire life and studied privately with several of the art world’s most renowned fine artists, Nicolosi has enjoyed being a practicing dentist in Chicago for the past three decades. His broad-stroke artwork is intense and reflects the passion embodied in this modern day mono-moniker artist.

The Postal Service is proud to be a recognized leader for equal opportunity and diversity. It has recently been named a top government agency for women by Professional Women’s Magazine , in it’s survey of the nation’s “Best of the Best” Top Diversity Employers for Women, which will be issued on Sept. 3, 2013.
