She presently serves as an administrative assistant and human resources manager for the Solid Waste Special Service District #1 in Moab, Utah. Ms. Myers’ duties include accounting, government research work and legislative, marketing and regulatory work.
Ms. Myers came of age under the wings of her hardworking parents. Surviving the Great Depression and during World War II, her mother started working as an accountant and secretary when women were encouraged to join the workforce in the absence of men. Later, her parents opened their hotel and restaurant serving many returning from the battlefields. With a small child to care for, they began the journey of adopting a dozen gravely ill children, unwanted by anyone else; they were always encouraging them to better themselves through dedication, and instilling in them a solid work ethic and an unwavering belief that anything worthwhile could be achieved. Taking this philosophy to heart, Ms. Myers started up her first successful business at the age of 14, studied hotel management, received a real estate license and earned certification as a public manager, computer programming language, medical coding and employment law.
For her accomplishments in the field, Ms. Myers received an Aloha Award for outstanding customer service given to the public, an Outstanding Safety Recognition, and was named as the Business Woman of the Year and Best Employee. She has spent much of her time with organizations fighting world hunger and AIDS in Africa. Civically, she has offered her time as a mentor for at-risk children. Ms, Myers also volunteers to help empower the communities she is involved in to rise above poverty and hunger.
Ms. Myers has attributed her professional success to her ethics, her tenacious, hardworking nature and her resolute integrity. To remain aware of developments affecting her field, she maintains her professional affiliation with the Utah Association of Special Districts (UASD), the Human Resources Association, the Healthcare Executives Network and the Society of Human Resources Managers. Looking towards the future, Ms. Myers aspires to continue working and helping others to achieve their best. It is in the success of others that she measures her personal success.
Ms. Myers wants people to know that she wants to be a published author, as she feels she has something to share, and she wants to encourage and inspire others. There is nothing people cannot achieve if they are willing to put in the work, and not forego their principles and values.
