Andee Elmore, Health Program Administrator, Health Department

Andee has worked for the Springfield-Greene County Health Department since 2010.

What have you learned since working at the City?

Our City is full of programs and resources designed to grow and support our community. Employees are well-skilled at identifying potential gaps in services and purposefully seeking community partnerships to bridge those gaps to better serve our citizens. I am continually impressed by this!

What are you passionate about?

I’m pretty passionate about Sunday afternoon naps and also kindness. Just be kind to each other.

How does your position impact the community?

I get to work with an incredible group of professionals who spend every day out in the community educating and enforcing codes designed to protect the public health and welfare of our citizens. Inspectors work with food establishments, farmers markets, festivals, dairy farms, pool operators and hotel/motels to make them safer. Animal control protects against rabies exposure and disease spread as well as injury prevention to both humans and animals. If you haven’t met Pedie, our shelter ambassador dog … you are missing out! Every single one of these people are passionate about their work and the role they play in this community

If you could switch your job with anyone else, whose would you want?

If I could switch jobs with anyone, I would love to be an environmental biologist. I love science!
