I have been the City Clerk for the City of Port Orchard since 2012, and was the Deputy City Clerk for four years prior. Some of my responsibilities include being the City’s Public Records Officer, Records Manager, and Risk Manager.
My professional ties include membership in the International Institute of Municipal Clerks (IIMC); the Washington Municipal Clerks Association (WMCA); Washington Association of Public Records Officers (WAPRO); and the Washington Public Risk Management Association (WA-PRIMA).
I have been involved in WMCA a few years back in that I served on the membership, scholarship, and historical committees. I am one of the founders of WAPRO, where I served as the Treasurer for one term and participated in the legislative and membership committees.
Through hard work and dedication, I have achieved the nationally accredited status of Certified Municipal Clerk (CMC) in 2011 and I am currently working towards my Master Municipal Clerk (MMC) certification, with hopes of receiving it by the end of this year. In 2013, I was one of the first to receive the certification of a Certified Public Records Officer (CPRO) recognized by WAPRO and I also received the 40 under Forty award acknowledged by the Kitsap Peninsula Business Journal.
I enjoy helping others and giving back to my community, in that I was a Girl Scout leader and Treasurer for 8 years. I served one term on the Board of Directors of an Elite Soccer organization as the Treasurer. I have been a part of the City’s Relay for Life fundraiser team and served two terms on the Fathoms O’ Fun Board of Directors as the Treasurer.
