She began working at the Recreation Department in July 2011 as an Administrative Assistant. “She is the cheerful voice one hears when you call the rec department or the smiling face you see if you come into the Civic Center. Her responsibilities include managing the office, maintain the websites, managing accounts payable, payroll and she serves as our overall team cheerleader,” said Mindy Daniel, Director of the Recreation Department. The athletics staff is appreciative of her organizational skills and timely assistance to financial matters, especially payables and the website. “She is a major piece of our puzzle,” said Jeff Middlebrooks and Brandon Lough. “She has a wonderful relationship with her co-workers and is always ready to go the extra mile.
