Prior to becoming director, Perez was talent manager for the board’s human resources department. She has served in that position since 2016.
According to a county release, two rounds of interviews were conducted with the most qualified candidates. The process ended on May 28, at which time Perez was selected as director.

She is also a member of the Society of Human Resources Management and the Association of Talent Development.
Perez was given high praise by the board during her introduction on July 6.
“I want to bring a positive difference to Marion County,” Perez said.
