Town Clerk for Cary

From the everyday tasks to long-term projects, each action taken and interaction has the opportunity to leave a positive impact on someone.

An Introduction: I’m honored to serve the community as town clerk for Cary. It has been a pleasure to be in that role for the last four years, out of the eight years I have been with Cary. I’m a curious person who loves strategic thinking and participating in new learning opportunities. I strive to face each day through a servant-leader mindset.

A Proud Moment: I am appreciative to be leading a team of dedicated and creative staff members and volunteers working on the Cary150 celebration. Together we have planned a memorable and fun year to celebrate this ceremonial time in our community’s history. The planning continues, as our activities will last all 2021.

I continue to be amazed by the creativity of this group as we had to shift from in-person events to virtual celebrations and interaction opportunities. It has been wonderful to see how the community has embraced the year as well. … (M)any people found ways to celebrate Cary by learning about our past, celebrating the present and getting excited about the future.

Recent Challenge: Like many others, switching to remote work and learning to become a virtual team was difficult. I took the hallway conversations or the ability to stop by someone’s office to chat for granted. It was a mind shift, along with providing an opportunity to reflect on my role and rethink how to do my job virtually.
