Since beginning my career at the Yavapai County Assessor’s Office in 2001, I have worn many hats – expanding my skills and education at every opportunity. A promotion to Residential Appraisal Supervisor was followed by my appointment as the Policy Oversight and Training Liaison due to my extensive knowledge of almost every aspect of the office. I earned my DOR Level II in 2007 and I am currently the Personal Property Supervisor. I have been a member of AZ IAAO since 2011, planned and organized chapter meetings in Prescott since 2012 and served as a Chapter Representative since 2016.
I began my career in assessment with Yavapai County in 2007. During my time with Yavapai County I served in many capacities. I relocated to the Pinal County Assessor’s Office in 2017, where I have worked up from Appraiser Senior to Litigation Supervisor.
I have been a member of the AZ IAAO since 2008, and an IAAO member since 2014. I have assisted in suc-cessfully hosting a multitude of Chapter Luncheons when in Yavapai County.
I have also assisted in putting together and presenting at Real Ware User Group Meetings and continuingeducation classes. I also assisted with DOR classes that where held in Yavapai. I currently hold an IAAO A.A.S. designation which I earned in July of 2016.

I am new to the Assessment community and currently work as the Administrative Assistant to Assessor Simmons in Yavapai County. I have had the pleasure of being a business owner for the past three years, and have been in charge of the bookkeep-ing and scheduling. I believe this experience provides me with a great deal of skills to pull from to help me successfully serve as the AZ IAAO Secretary.
