I am new to the CCPRD staff beginning my new career as Business Manager in June 2018. I worked for over 25 years as a medical transcriptionist at the Madras and Prineville hospitals and moonlighting at home transcribing for private clinics in the evenings. I am so excited to now put my business administration degree to use after my detour so many years ago! My grandparents moved to Prineville in 1948 so I am a third generation Crook County resident who has lived in Prineville the majority of my life only moving away for college. I raised my son and daughter here and my daughter and son-in-law have recently moved back to raise my granddaughters here. In my spare time I love spending time in the Ochocos camping, hunting, fishing, riding my ATV and geocaching with my family. My other happy place is the Oregon Coast where I love to take my grandchildren. Taking cruises is also a passion of mine having just completed #7 with my mom to Alaska last year. I am so blessed to live in such a wonderful community that offers so many recreational opportunities for all ages and I look forward to meeting new people as they come in to sign up for activities.
