Structured Certified Court Clerk possessing 60 wpm typing speed and first-rate organizational and communication abilities. Prepares and examines legal documents, administers oaths, and records minutes. Focused on liaising between judges and other county departments and agencies.


    In order to maintain a fast and efficient environment in our office, I have build and maintained all the forms in our iDocket system so that we do not have to hand type any of the information in to the forms.
