The Board will present the Employee of the Month award for September to Carol Heaney of the Public Defender's Office.
Board President Rice read the following:
Carol Heaney, a legal process specialist since 1987, is everything a Marin County employee should be: positive, energetic, competent and caring. Carol’s legendary direct style of communication and sense of humor have earned her respect both inside and outside her department. For many years, Carol has assembled all of the “in custody” files in the Public Defender’s office, and helped attorneys to obtain necessary discovery and other documents. She is very detail oriented, and rarely does one need to ask her twice to complete a task. In many ways, Carol Heaney represents the “heart” of the Public Defender’s Office.
Carol volunteers every year to coordinate the Combined Charities Campaign, and she has helped our office to achieve a high level of participation. She recently collected donations to secure backpacks and school supplies for Marin’s homeless and poor children. Carol is a person who exemplifies the mission of the Public Defender by treating everyone with respect, and working toward our goal of encouraging our clients to lead positive and productive lives.
Thank you, Carol, for your service and congratulations on being chosen Employee of the Month.
