Pam Ray, Finance Officer

I'm so happy to be working with the City of Turner. I've had many years of accounting and office management education & experience, but about 10 years ago I decided to make a change and enrolled in Le Cordon Bleu Culinary Arts. I love to cook, and have worked as an executive chef and a culinary instructor since graduating. 

My husband and I have recently moved back to Oregon after a three-year stint of teaching at a university in Shaoxing, China. My hobbies include cooking (of course!), embroidery, reading, hiking, and spending time with friends and family.

Lisa Nunnellee, City Clerk

A little about me, other than I am old as dirt…

I’ve been married for 33 years with two adult children, no grand babies (yet) .  My previous work history includes many years in the private sector of the mortgage industry, 6 years with the State of Oregon, and a brief stent selling cars. I volunteered for the NW Youth Rodeo association for 16 years while my kids participated. I enjoy binge watching movies and crime series, target practice, snugging my 3 dogs, 1 pig, 4 horses and chasing my many chickens around.  I don’t love yard work but do it because I do love the end result.

So happy to be a part of the City of Turner, where I have lived for the last 20 years, and where my kids have grown up.

Asia Reardon, AP/Utility Billing Clerk & Events Coordinator

Asia is a native Oregonian and has lived throughout Oregon her entire life, including the Willamette Valley, the coast and in Southern Oregon. She moved from Salem to the Santiam Canyon with her family several years ago because it felt like the right area to raise a family. Small towns are near and dear to her heart; and she is excited to be working with the residents of the City of Turner. 

Aside from spending time with her husband, three sons, numerous pets and local extended family, you can usually find her baking, reading, sewing, doing Crossfit, volunteering in the community, or enjoying the Pacific Northwest to the fullest by kayaking, hiking, and gardening.

Sandra Goodrich, Part-Time City Hall Clerical Staff

I retired from Clackamas County Finance Dept where I did their payroll for about 2500 employees. After retirement we moved to Sunriver Oregon to enjoy the outdoor life offered in Central Oregon. We became snowbirds to Arizona in the winter. Then we moved to Salem where I job shared at the Oregon State Fair and Expo until Covid hit and I lost my job. I was looking for a part time job and discovered the City of Turner was looking for someone.  I am excited to be working here at the City. I am exploring the area and the community.
