Dear penderlifer and anyone else who is hiding behind a false name:
To begin with I'll start with my education. I have a BA in Public Relations from North Carolina State University. Skills I learned while furthering my education are currently serving Pender County, and myself, quite a bit of good b/c it takes up about 75% of my time on the job. Dealing with the media, the public and numerous animal welfare groups on an hourly basis is not the easiest of jobs. Also, contrary to what penderlifer would have you believe, I am not scared of cats or dogs, I have been through and passed numerous training seminars to better my knowledge of my program. I am a certified euthanasia technician, a certified rabies vaccinator as well as certified in chemical immobilization (I can also instruct/train chemical immobilization).
Secondly, I was hired by a diverse panel of Health Department employees as is standard hiring procedure within the Health Department. If there was any favortism given to myself in being hired for the Animal Control Supervisor position it was not from Dr. Griffith as the panel of interviewers all agreed on hiring me.
Finally, the position I currently hold was offered to a past and current employee in the Animal Control program. This person turned the position down to remain in their present position.
I know I said "finally" in the last paragraph, but, finally, if anyone has any questions or problems with anyone they should go directly to them and express their feelings. This sneaking around and talking behind people's backs and posting anonymous comments is cowardly at best. Grow up. Make your own self. Don't try to tear others down to get where you do not belong anyways.
