I have called Citrus County home since 1982. Prior to my election in 2012, I worked for the Citrus County Clerk's Office for 22 years, serving as Chief Deputy Clerk from 2007-2012. January 2021 marked the beginning of my third term as the elected Clerk and over the past two terms, I have focused on implementing new technologies that streamline operations and expand access to public services. I prioritize service to the citizens and providing the constituency accountability, transparency, and efficiency. Happily married to my husband Alan, I dedicate my free time to church, family, friends and music.
Education is at the top of my list of priorities. I hold a BA in Business Administration with an Accounting Specialization from St. Leo University and earned certification through the Government Finance Officers Association in Advanced Governmental Accounting, Reporting, Budgeting, and Fraud detection.

I completed 240 hours of training in my first 18 months in office and received the designation of Certified Clerk of Court which I maintain annually through continuing education and training.
