I began my career with the Town of
in 1995, I have been elected 6 times for 3 year terms each.
I have acquired many educational certifications and completed a 4
year program with the NH Town Clerk/Tax Collector Joint Certification
Program. This program is
specifically designed to encompass legal, ethical and mandatory
procedures specifically required of the position of Town Clerk/Tax
Collector. By completing
this 4 year program I am now a “Certified Town Clerk/Tax Collector.”
have also been actively involved with the NH Tax Collectors Association
and the NH City &Town Clerks Association executive boards which has
allowed me to maintain a constant resource and networking opportunity. I
feel very strongly about continuing education programs in the area of
municipal government. With
the constant changing of laws, if you do not continue your education and
networking you will soon not have a clue about what the job requires.
Therefore, I have pledged to always keep up with educational
opportunities specifically relative to the functions of Town Clerk/Tax

appreciation to the residents and taxpayers Hill for allowing me to
serve our community. As one
of my favorite quotes goes, “The friendships of those we serve is the
foundation of our progress.”
you. It is all of you that make my job so wonderful!
