August 2017 Employee of the Month

Griselda Hurtado

Finance Department

For the month of August 2017, we are pleased to honor Griselda Hurtado as employee of the month for the City of Porterville.  Griselda joined the Finance Team in September 2013 as an Account Clerk I.

Griselda has a great attitude; she reports to work with a smile on her face and ready to work.  She immediately demonstrated outstanding performance in her new position. Her work is accurate and organized. On busy days, she averages over 600 transactions per day.  Griselda is able to maintain a courteous demeanor, even in adverse situations.  She is able to express a calm and polite attitude while dealing with the most difficult customer, while always adhering to policies.  She is a silent and efficient employee, which keeps the front counter calm.  She is a well-poised front line employee who has to hear many, many complaints each day and yet somehow, she remains composed, respectful and attentive to everyone.

In March, 2016, Griselda was promoted to an Account Clerk II position.  In her new position, she is the back-up person for Utility Billing.  She also has the responsibility of auditing new service accounts.  She is very conscientious and thorough with her work.  Griselda is a team player and will help out when needed.  She is well respected by anyone who has the pleasure of working with her.

Griselda obtained a California Notary license in June of 2016 which helps us out tremendously!  During the East Porterville ESA sign up events, Griselda helped out after regular work hours and some weekends to notarize documents for the public.  Being bilingual was a great asset during these events. 

Griselda graduated from Monache High School in 2007.  She then graduated from California State University Stanislaus in 2011 with a bachelor’s degree in Business Administration.  She worked for Tulare County before starting her career with the City Of Porterville.

Although Griselda is a very quiet person, she is also very adventurous.  She loves to skydive, hike and travel.  This last year she traveled to Chicago to visit family, vacationed in Las Vegas and Hawaii, and recently just returned from a trip to the Dominican Republic.  She is up every morning to attend “Boot Camp” to workout at 6:00am.  She has successfully participated in the City Fitness Program since she started working here. In her spare time she enjoys spending time with her family, friends and “Daisy”, her German Shepherd.  She is a first time homeowner and is always finding projects around the house to do.  When asked what she likes most about her job, she quickly answered “my co-workers”.

Griselda, thank you for everything that you do for us.  You represent the City of Porterville in such a positive manner!  We are very fortunate to have you working with us!
