May 2011 Employee of the Month

Shauna Craig

Administrative Services Department

For the month of May 2011, we are honoring SHAUNA CRAIG as the City of Porterville’s Employee of the Month.

Shauna spent the majority of her adolescence in some state of “moving,” either packing, moving, or unpacking!  She was born in New Jersey, and has lived in Massachusetts, New York, Connecticut, Washington, Oregon, and all over California, before settling in Porterville during her freshman year of high school.  She is a graduate of both Monache High and Porterville College.

Shauna began working for the City of Porterville in January 2010 when she was hired as a Human Resources Assistant in the Administrative Services Department.  As an HR Assistant, Shauna is responsible for all recruitments for the City, oversees the employee service awards program, conducts customer service trainings, and also serves as “wellness guru,” administering the City’s wellness program.  For the first time, the City’s fitness incentive testing was taken in-house in an effort to cut costs. Shauna not only oversaw this successful transition, but also does an outstanding job in managing the program.  Participation in the program has since tripled, due much to the enthusiastic efforts of Shauna.  In addition, Shauna has created “The Wellness Word,” an electronic employee newsletter which she publishes bi-monthly.  Shauna’s positive, can-do attitude, her strong organizational skills, and creativity has helped promote a more healthful culture amongst City employees which will most certainly positively impact health coverage costs in years to come.  Shauna is the quintessential team player, always offering her assistance where needed.  She hit the ground running upon her hire and has yet to stop, or even slow down!

When asked to describe her favorite aspect of her job, Shauna says that conducting recruitments for many of the City’s positions has made her appreciative of all of the things that as citizens we take for granted, such as the safety of our drinking water, what happens once a toilet is flushed or trash is left at the curb, or whether or not someone will be there when 911 is dialed.  She is proud to serve the City and greatly enjoys working with fellow employees and the public.

Shauna is married to Mike, and they have three amazing daughters:  KaitLynn, age 16; Shae, age 14; and Hanna, age 6.  In her spare time, Shauna enjoys “Stampin Up” crafting, entertaining, writing, riding quads, organizing, and reading (Shauna is a founding member of the City’s book club).
