In the course of just a few minutes, two different residents approached her desk and inquired about dropping off a job application for a city position, she fielded a phone call from a local business in regard to possible participation in the upcoming Festival of Discovery and she received a visit from the manager of a local pizzeria who wanted details about a weekend car show in Uptown.
Those few minutes were a microcosm of Albert’s typical workday. She is constantly called upon to not only handle her duties as the executive secretary to city manager Charlie Barrineau and Mayor Welborn Adams, but also to operate as a “traffic cop,” of sorts, in directing residents to the correct department to get their questions answered.
A native of Columbia, Albert has been the executive secretary for the City of Greenwood for nearly 14 years. She began her career in Greenwood working with then-city manager Steve Brown and then-Mayor Floyd Nicholson, and now works directly with Barrineau and Adams.
Albert is a certified administrative professional, with an emphasis in office management. In 2007-08, she was named Administrative Professional of the Year by the Emerald Chapter of the International Association of Administrative Professionals.
