Employee of the Quarter
We are very pleased to announce that Lisa Whittaker is the recipient our Quarterly Quality Service Recognition Award. We were very fortunate to have had the opportunity to make Lisa part of our office family in 2016.
Lisa has been previously assigned to both our property tax division and our motor vehicle title and registration operations. She spent a considerable amount of time working in our dealer’s section where her work performance was outstanding in regards to both her daily volume of transactions and her accuracy.
Lisa has excelled wherever she has been, which prompted her re-assignment to our bookkeeping dept. where she continues to do us a very good job!! Lisa had a great deal experience with working with the public before coming to our office and she is simply a natural with working with our citizens.
Lisa engages with the public in a very positive, friendly and helpful fashion and for that reason she is no stranger to an endless list of kind compliments. Those compliments are a very significant part of the criteria that determines who is worthy of receiving this award (4) times a year. And with that being said, Lisa exemplifies what our entire office strives for everyday in providing cheerful and friendly service.
Congratulations Lisa we are very proud of you.
