Delivering results for our community through
Service, Leadership and Passion
Service is at the very heart of my ongoing vision for the Douglas County Recorder’s Office. This office exists for the direct purpose and mission of serving the citizens and visitors of our community through documenting and preserving the history and heritage of our county in its purest form.
Serving in the Recorder’s Office for the past 15 years, I have worked extensively on technology and process improvements and served as the manager on the implementation of new technology moving all paper and microfilm records to digital records to preserve, protect, and improve accessibility of your land and marriage documents that make up the history of Douglas County. Modernizing the recording software, digitization and implementation of our recently launched Recording Notification Service are some of the projects that I have led working alongside our County Recorder.
The Douglas County Recorder's Office is responsible for over 1.3 million recorders office records and manages the physical inventory of 4,700 boxes of records for more than 30 departments throughout the County.
I hope to earn your vote and would be honored to serve.
