Number of Years Employed by Livingston County: 

It will be two years this August. 

The thing I like most about working for Livingston County is: 

The wonderful group of people I work with. Elizabeth Hundley is an incredible leader who makes everyone feel like they are valued. Clerk Hundley and my fellow coworkers are always pitching in to help out. Each one of us is unique, and where one has weakness, another will bring strength. We work together to resolve problems and tackle large tasks thus creating an environment of respect and thankfulness. I also would like to mention that it is truly a pleasure to work alongside Joseph Bridgman on a daily basis. He is a wealth of knowledge, help, and humor.

What are some small things that make your day better? 

Every morning when I arrive at work my coworkers greet me with a cheery good morning. They each have a wonderful sense of humor which helps keep my days positive and happy. I also enjoy meeting and conversing with the residents of Livingston County, the local Township Clerks and their employees and my extended county employees. I have had the pleasure of many enjoyable and interesting conversations.

How do you relax after a hard day of work? 

By attending my son's sporting events or taking my dog for a walk/run.

Do you prefer the Ocean, Lake or Pool? 

Definitely a  lake because it is perfect for boating activities and swimming.

Where is the most interesting place you've been? 

The mountains/jungles of Costa Rica. Although the heat and creepy crawlers took some getting used to, the surfing and deep sea fishing were incredible. I would love to vacation there again.

If you could take only three items with you to a deserted island, what would they be? 

A solar powered all terrain vehicle, a fully loaded yacht and a helicopter. Actually, I've been to a deserted island – I took sunscreen, my camera and a lunch.
