Employee of the Quarter

Fourth Quarter of 2022

The Employee of the Quarter for the fourth quarter of 2022 is

Karen Johnson from the Recorder's Office

Karen Johnson

Karen Johnson is a dedicated, friendly, knowledgeable, and long-term (35 years!) Boone County employee who gets results and genuinely cares about other people.  In her daily interactions with surveyors, title companies, and others, she is always optimistic and courteous and provides positive solutions to any problem.  She is the pinnacle of customer service in her office.

Her co-workers rely on Karen for advice and instruction on new procedures.  She has personally trained everyone in the Recorder’s office, and her patience and approach to every situation is top notch.  Karen has a remarkable ability to remember the details of previous situations and she uses this ability to provide context on how her office can best approach any challenge.  She will bend over backward to help others, takes initiative to ensure the office is running effectively, and interjects fun into the day.

Karen’s quiet leadership was especially valuable at the end of 2022, by maintaining the high level of service our customers expect as the office transitioned to a newly elected Recorder.  Karen is the glue that binds the Recorder’s office, and Boone County is better because of her service.

Karen’s hard work and willingness to go out of her way to help anyone that comes across her path makes her very deserving of Employee of the Quarter.
