Citizen Services post is filled

March 30, 2007|By Larry Carson | Larry Carson,Sun Reporter

Lois Mikkila, a 27-year Columbia resident and management consultant who is active in human services issues, has been named deputy director of Howard County's Department of Citizen Services by County Executive Ken Ulman.

Mikkila, 52, who is also president of the board of directors of FIRN Inc., formerly known as the Foreign Born Information and Referral Network, fills a vacancy that had existed since August, when Sharon Dawson, then the deputy director, left.

A private consultant, Mikkila has done strategic planning for citizen services programs and has spent most of her career working with nonprofit and government agencies, so Ulman said she is a natural fit for the post.

"Lois' work experiences make her extremely qualified for this position," Ulman said in an announcement. The post pays $92,456.
