September 2010 Employee of the Month

Michelle Bascom

Parks & Leisure Services Department

Michelle Bascom was born and raised here in Porterville.  She moved to the Bay Area in 1985 and returned in 2002.

Prior to being hired in May 2009, she worked for Pioneer Home Outreach, Inc. for several years as a Social Worker and Assistant Director.

Michelle feels very blessed to be a part of the staff here at the City of Porterville.  She states that from day one, there have been many people who are very helpful and supportive.  The Parks and Leisure Services Department provides a variety of services to the community, which lends itself to many different opportunities for learning.  She tries to take advantage of those opportunities to expand her knowledge base to be as effective as possible.  The combination of a broad range of job responsibilities and a great staff is why she enjoys her job very much.

Michelle’s family includes her husband Lloyd, her son Richard, who is currently serving in the United States Air Force and is stationed at Kirtland Air Force Base in Albuquerque, New Mexico, and two step children Eric and Brandy, who reside in Fresno.

Michelle enjoys cooking, cleaning, learning to play golf and target shooting.
