Last December, Danielle Bible was hired as the new Assistant City Administrator and Finance Director.
Bible applied for the position in May after she completed her bachelor’s degree from West Virginia University. Her degree is a conglomeration of different minors, including business administration, public relations, human services, and health promotion. “With that degree, I have four minors, which provides me the opportunity to dabble in multiple different things instead of getting stuck in one area,” Bible said.
She is currently enrolled in an online Master of Business Administration program through Liberty University. She enrolled in the master’s program two days after she completed her undergraduate degree. “I am hoping to be done in October of this year, maybe December,” Bible said in reference to her master’s degree timeline.
Bible works closely with Jason Myers, Parsons city administrator and treasurer. “He is the main man in charge, and I am his second,” Bible said.
“We wanted someone here with a degree in the business field,” Myers said. Myers said her work history also stood out to the personnel committee. Bible previously worked at the Rubenstein Center for two years as an accounting tech.
“She is a very quick learner and very intelligent,” Myers said. “You can tell her something once, and it sticks. I’ve trained a lot of people, and most people learn in repetition, but you tell her one time, and she’s ready to go.”
“I was glad to see this position open, and I applied,” Bible said. “I wanted to find a position that was more of a career not just a job.”
Bible lived in Davis most of her life and is a Tucker County High School graduate. She and her fiancé recently bought a house in Parsons and relocated down the hill from Davis.
As far as work goes at the Parsons Business Office, “Everyone is so nice, and they are willing to lend you hand when you need help. It’s like a second family,” she reported.
“I’m still learning everything, everything is so new,” she said. She believes she brings dedication, a solid work ethic, and multitasking skills to the Business Office team.
The different tasks Bible manages at the office include processing pay roll, paying bills for the city, completing work orders, attending council meetings, and providing expenditure reports.
Bible commented that business activity in Parsons is on the rise. “I think Parsons is a small town, but there are so many new business popping up, it’s really thriving. Just over the last year or two I’ve noticed all the different restaurants open up, and they’ve all been successful.”
