Employee of the Quarter - Maria Hernandez

The Ninth Judicial Circuit Court is proud to announce Maria Hernandez as the next Employee of the Quarter. Maria began employment with the Ninth Circuit in September of 2013. In her short time with us, Maria has distinguished herself as a hardworking, extremely motivated employee who is always looking to improve how the jury services department efficiently processes jurors and works cohesively with other departments. Because of her exemplary work ethic, Maria was designated as the Lead Assistant in the Jury Services Department.

Besides providing exceptional customer service to jurors and working cooperatively with courtroom staff and coworkers, Maria goes above and beyond her normal work duties by thinking outside of the box to come up with creative solutions for everyday problems. She also proactively identifies potential issues and makes recommendations on possible solutions to resolve them. Maria was pivotal in helping the department transition to the new jury management system during our last migration and she continues to provide crucial feedback and insight as we currently transition to another jury management system.

She has been an invaluable support to her coworkers and management and we are truly honored to recognize her efforts. We truly appreciate the significant contributions Maria has made to the Ninth Circuit and look forward to seeing what innovative solutions she comes up with next.
