Skills & Abilities
MANAGEMENT – COMMUNICATION -LEADERSHIP – DEDICATION
My introduction to Nye County in 1999 came at a scandalous time which I turned into an education in adversity, diversity, overcoming challenges, integrity and perceptiveness. I proved my ability to handle adversity and challenges beyond my control while I focused my efforts on being a valuable asset and elevating the reputation of the facility during the ACO/ketamine scandal and investigations of 2000. As a dispatcher it is vital to evaluate verbal, written and visual information to successfully extrapolate the facts and communicate that to field agencies. These matters must have determinations rendered that are well thought out, expeditious with full consideration to rights, law and procedures in emergency and non-emergency situations. I have been trained by this county to make quick, educated and well planned decisions based on the facts in front of me and documented training procedures.
I have a proven talent to breach gaps between the departments, mend broken fences and work cohesively interdepartmentally and with outside agencies. This talent and camaraderie helped me to excel at learning and incorporating legal and court procedures not only into my daily job duties but my thought processes until it became a routing part of my logic and reasoning skills. I’ve cultivated diplomacy, communication, objectivity and most importantly leadership skills which are critical to all professionals. These skills have caused me to be the “go to person” for other agencies when reaching out not only to the District Attorney’s office but to other agencies in our County.
I have been described as decisive, fearless, take charge, enterprising, competitive, charismatic and very result oriented by peers and the public I am known amongst State agencies such as Nevada Department of Corrections, Nevada Highway Patrol and the Division of Parole and Probation for my reliable response time and tenacious nature to get things done with accuracy. I’ve nurtured a strong relationship with the Courts and am frequently sought out for my opinion on procedures because I’ve proven myself to be knowledgeable, forthright, and well-reasoned. I possess the rare added ability to think outside the box and be devil’s advocate to predict possible pitfalls or negative outcomes.
