Laclede County Health
"Protecting Our Community"
405 Harwood Ave.
Ellen is a Missouri Probation and Parole Officer by trade and decided to join our team because of her high interest in public health and emergency preparedness.Becoming a board member was her way of helping look out for her family, neighbors, and community. She is extremely patriotic and very blessed to live in a country where we have more freedom, rights, and choices than we can even count! In her spare time, Ellen enjoys reading, making crafts, and traveling to our many states and national parks. Ellen also loves hanging out with family and friends! Communicable Diseases are what Ellen believes to be the biggest health concern in our county as well as others and appreciates that the Laclede County Health Department posts our restaurant inspections on this website and broadcasts health reports over KJEL Radio regularly which would quickly reach a population in case of any emergencies.
Brad is a consultant for Epic Beaker and was encouraged by a former board member to be apart of this great team and the good works the County Health Department is doing. Brad has been consulting and training for nearly twenty years and moved back to Lebanon in 2008 with his wife of 11 years and two wonderful children! In his opinion, mosquitoes are one of the biggest health concerns in Laclede County.
Board of Trustees
Sherry L. Williams
Sherry is a Patient Experience Coordinator at Lake Regional Health Systems and an Adjunct Professor at both Drury University and OTC. Along with her busy daily life, she decided to join our board because health care is one of her passions and she considers volunteering in the community a civic duty. Sherry takes great interest in making sure the health needs in the community are met. After her husband retired from the United States Army, they made Lebanon their home in 1996.Sherry spends all her free time in her beautiful flower beds and vegetable garden as well as watching the birds in her bird and butterfly gardens! According to Sherry, the biggest health concern in Laclede County right now is drug use, non-compliance with treatment plans, inability to access affordable health care, and not being able to partner with our community members to make sure their health care needs are always being met. She hopes that we never lose the ability to help our community members in need and feels that our Health Department does an excellent job of providing necessary health services.
