I have been employed in the Tillamook County Clerk's office for over eighteen years. I began as an office clerk and worked my way up to the elected position of County Clerk. It is my job to supervise the office staff and coordinate all office functions. I have made it a point to know the statutes and administrative rules that govern our work in the County Clerk's Office.
The County Clerk's Office is responsible for recordings, elections, and the Board of Property Tax Appeals. The office issues marriage licenses, passports and dog licenses. During my years of work in the department, I have attended many classes and conferences specific to the work of the County Clerk's Office. I feel I obtain the knowledge, experience and customer service skills necessary to continue to operate this office effectively and efficiently.
I have the leadership abilities necessary to make hard decisions and choices that come with an elected office. I am able to listen to the needs of the people we serve, and make the management decisions necessary to achieve the greatest good for the greatest number of our customers. I will continue to expand the County Clerk's roll in citizen education, customer service, and systems improvement.
I look forward to continuing to work with and for the people of Tillamook County.
