How did you come to work for the City of Tucker?
In November of 2019, I decided to make a career change that was more community driven and more spiritually fulfilling. I prayed that the perfect job opportunity would present itself before the year ended. Behold, in December 2019 I began my new job with the City of Tucker as the Community Development Administrative Assistant.
Tell us about your day-to-day job responsibilities…
As the Community Development Admin my day-to-day job responsibilities consist of assisting the Director of Community Development and planners with preparing and processing legal ads, notifications letters and signs, agendas, and minutes for Zoning Boards of Appeals and Planning Commission meetings. I ensure responses are made to daily Community Development calls and emails. In addition, I support the Permitting department with walk-in customers, processing permit applications and payments.
What do you like best about working in the Community Development department?
What I like best about working in the Community Development department is that I have the opportunity to serve my community each day and work with awesome staff members who are hard-working and committed to keeping the City of Tucker great.
What’s it like living and working in the same city?
Living and working in the same city is awesome! Tucker is a peaceful place where no one is a stranger. Working for the city has allowed me to meet so many wonderful residents of Tucker, who love the city and care deeply about what’s going on in the community. Obviously, one of my biggest perks is my ten-minute commute to and from work each day. On my way home from work my favorite stores and restaurants are conveniently on my route, including several churches I can attend that are a block or two apart.
OFF THE WALL
What are some of your hobbies?

If your friends had three words to describe you, what would they say?
Loyal, fair and wise.
What is the movie you could watch over and over?
I love the comedy movie Daddy’s Home with Will Ferrell. I am a die-hard fan of Will Ferrell and I love to laugh.
What is your fondest childhood memory?
I have many fond childhood memories, but one of my favorite childhood memories was the day that my father came home from the Army with my first pair of white skates. I felt so lucky to have two great gifts in one day.
Who has had the biggest influence on your life?
The biggest influence in my life has been my father. Though he has positively impacted my life in numerous ways, his wisdom on how he lives life has been the foundation to how I live mine. He taught me at the tender age of eight to always put God first in everything, honor your father and mother, respect your elders, take pride in what you do and treat people like you want to be treated. These are words that I live by to this day and forever. We can give our kids many things, but there is nothing like wisdom and knowledge.
