Julie Spor- President
Sisters-Camp Sherman Fire District
Phone: (541) 549-0771

Bio: I began my fire service career as an Ambulance Billing Clerk in February 2003 at Sisters-Camp Sherman Fire District. Being a fairly small department, I have had the opportunity over the years to add more and more duties, and now am involved in all aspects of Office Administration for the District.

I joined OFSOA almost immediately upon being hired at the District and attended training events whenever I could. I wanted to get more involved with OFSOA and began working on my Accreditation and also hosted my first workshop in 2012 with a great team of ladies from the membership. Completing the Accreditation was a big accomplishment for me and hosting a workshop was something I really enjoyed doing. I love that we have such a unique group with such a vast array of skills that we can call upon whenever we need help.

Susan Shepard - Past President
Polk County Fire District #1 
Phone: (503) 838-1510

Bio: I began working in the fire service in August of 2003 after 17 years of experience in the private industry. Little did I know how rewarding a career in the fire service was going to be. I work at Polk County Fire District No.1 in Independence, Oregon as the Office Administrator. My responsibilities include all aspects of finance, payroll, budget, HR, support to the Fire Chief and Staff, and I oversee all office administrative duties.

After attending my first OFSOA event I was so amazed at how much support I received. Being new to the fire service I cannot tell you how much that meant to me, and it still does today. OFSOA is definitely an organization that provides resources and training for any aspect of our many jobs in the fire service, for which I am very grateful.

I have served on the Board of Directors as Treasurer for approximately 2 ½ years, and it was truly an honor to serve as your President for 4 years. The support, teamwork, and encouragement of the OFSOA members are invaluable both professionally and personally. Our motto "Sharing a Standard of Excellence" says it all!

Paula Landrus- Vice President

Bio: I began my career in the fire service in 2001. I am the finance manager at Crook County Fire & Rescue. My duties include all aspects of finance, payroll, accounts payable, accounts receivable, HR, budgeting as well as support to the Fire Chief and the Board of Directors.
Prior to the fire service, I worked at the City of Prineville. I was also a travel agent for 12 years.

I joined OFSOA in 2004 and I have served on the Board of Directors as Region Representative, Secretary, conference co-chair and hospitality chair. I received all three levels of my Accreditation in 2014. OFSOA has been very good for me on a personal level as well as professional.

Jamie Vohs
Jamie Vohs- Treasurer
Black Butte Ranch RFPD
Phone: (541) 595-2288

Bio: I started my career in the fire service in October of 2011 at Black Butte Ranch RFPD. While my time in the fire service has been somewhat limited, I have worked as a financial assistant in the private sector for many years. I graduated from Oregon State University in 2000, completing my bachelors in Business Administration and minoring in Economics. Coming to Black Butte Ranch has allowed me to expand my knowledge base even more and has opened a new world of opportunity of learning the public sector.

As soon as I started with Black Butte Ranch RFPD, my good friend Julie Spor told me about OFSOA. I joined the organization immediately, as she told me it would be a great resource especially for someone new coming into the industry. April 2012, I got to be a part of my first workshop and that is where I saw what a special organization this is. I’m excited about being involved with such a great group of individuals and serving as your Treasurer.
