  • I was thrilled with the privilege of receiving Employee of the Year in 2019.
    With my short time with the county, I have met so many incredible co-workers and employees who make collaboration and achievements look easy. I’m proud to be part of a county that works together for solutions to support employees and benefit the community.

  • I love learning, and teaching gives me the opportunity to learn all the time.  For me, yes, I'm the teacher of the class, but I don't see myself as the sole possessor of knowledge.
    I can learn just as much from the students as I can bring to them.
