President Dulcy Pierce: Coming Soon!
Past President Julie Spor: I began my fire service
career as an Ambulance Billing Clerk in February 2003 at Sisters-Camp Sherman
Fire District. Being a fairly small department, I have had the opportunity over
the years to add more and more duties, and now am involved in all aspects of
Office Administration for the District.
I joined OFSOA almost immediately upon being hired at the District and attended
training events whenever I could. I wanted to get more involved with OFSOA and
began working on my Accreditation and also hosted my first workshop in 2012
with a great team of ladies from the membership. Completing the Accreditation
was a big accomplishment for me and hosting a workshop was something I really
enjoyed doing. I love that we have such a unique group with such a vast array
of skills that we can call upon whenever we need help.
Vice President Ashley Naught: I began my fire service career in the Supply Department here at TVF&R as a Supply Customer Service Clerk. I was responsible for ordering a variety of items for the District, working with crews to order items for the stations, and acted as an instructor of sorts for our internal ordering process. I came from the private sector as a manager in retail, which makes me that much more appreciative to be involved in the fire service!
I was promoted to an Executive Assistant in 2015, supporting the Fire Chief and the Board of Directors, and a variety of projects. I love being involved in the fire service, and couldn’t ask for a more rewarding job. I heard about the OFSOA through my counterpart & good friend, Executive Assistant, Olivia Houck, and knew immediately I wanted to join and be involved! I am a new member, and I am amazed at the level and amount of resources offered. I couldn’t be more excited to serve as the new Vice President! I’m hoping I can put some of my photojournalism classes to work.
In my time away from the District, my husband and I enjoy traveling in our RV, camping, fishing, hunting, shooting trap, and I love to sew, scrapbook and be creative!
Secretary Hailey Meshnik: Coming Soon!
Treasurer Jamie Vohs: I started my career in the fire service in October of 2011 at Black Butte Ranch RFPD. While my time in the fire service has been somewhat limited, I have worked as a financial assistant in the private sector for many years. I graduated from Oregon State University in 2000, completing my bachelor's in Business Administration and minoring in Economics. Coming to Black Butte Ranch has allowed me to expand my knowledge base even more and has opened a new world of opportunity for learning the public sector.
As soon as I started with Black Butte Ranch RFPD, my good friend Julie Spor told me about OFSOA. I joined the organization immediately, as she told me it would be a great resource, especially for someone new coming into the industry. April 2012, I got to be a part of my first workshop, where I saw what a special organization this is. I’m excited about being involved with such a great group of individuals and serving as your Treasurer.

Membership Chair Donna Fleischman: Coming soon!
Protocol Chair Rhonda Grant: I began working for the fire service in 1986. My responsibilities over the years have included accounts payable, accounts receivable, human resources including payroll and benefits administration, desktop publishing, budgeting, billing, reporting to State & Federal agencies, research, scheduling, event planning, and general administrative support.
I joined OFSOA in 1992 after a friend from a neighboring district told me about the organization. I was so thrilled with the training and what I was learning from networking with the other members that I wanted to be more involved to help keep the organization growing. I have served on the Board of Directors as a Region Representative, Treasurer, Conference Co-Chair, Vice President, and President and enjoyed every moment. The members of OFSOA are encouraging and inspiring and the training has been such a valuable resource that has helped me to grow personally and professionally. I know of no other organization that offers such pertinent and excellent training and encourages its members to succeed in all they do. OFSOA truly lives up to its motto of "Sharing a Standard of Excellence".
In my free time, I love to read, sew, walk, do crosswords and needlework, learn new software, and spend time with my husband, daughters, and their families.
Education Chair Sally Cravinho: I am fortunate to have worked in state government for over 19 years; 10 years at Oregon Lottery working with Oregon State Police in the Security Section providing assistance to the detectives in the background investigation process for potential retailers, vendors and employees. In the last nine years I have worked at the Office of State Fire Marshal, starting out in 2007 in the License & Permits unit as a Licensing Representative, then in 2010, I promoted to my current position as the Executive Assistant to the State Fire Marshal.
Prior to working for the state, I worked at US Bank for three years and then became a travel agent for six years in the Portland area and later in Salem. I enjoyed planning my clients’ travel around the world and getting to do some traveling myself. I remained in the travel business but transferred to the hotel side of it as the front desk manager for a hotel chain before becoming an Executive Assistant for GTECH, a worldwide corporation based out of Rhode Island, which manufactures on-line gaming machines. I managed the front office, handled all correspondence, accounts receivable/payable, HR, payroll, phones, office supplies and anything else that needed attention.
After attending my first OFSOA Conference in 2011, I was hooked. The experience was more than I ever imagined and I couldn’t have met a greater group of supportive women, who have become friends that I look forward to seeing at each workshop and conference, as well as gaining valuable knowledge from such diverse speakers. Being involved in this wonderful organization, I felt the need to get more involved and give back for all the support I’ve received over the past five years, and welcome new members, as I was welcomed. I look forward to serving as your Education Chair.
