A native West Virginian, Misty moved out of state to attend college. After graduating with a bachelor's degree in criminal justice, she accepted a job in law enforcement where she embodied the highest professional standards for over a decade. During her law enforcement career, she gained substantial knowledge in a broad range of interests, including criminology, criminal justice, courts/judicial systems, public safety, corrections, crime prevention, juvenile justice, emergency response, policy and program development, community awareness, leadership, strong initiative, conflict resolution, mental agility and adaptability.
In her current role as a program manager, she is responsible for the overall development and management of a grant-funded program that serves more than 200 seniors and adults with disabilities in a two-county region. Her responsibilities include the implementation of information technology and communication systems to facilitate workflow, fiscal oversight, and coordination of program activities.
Her passion in life is to serve her community and to make life better for her neighbors in her home state of West Virginia.
