Former Clerk Christa Coffey's new job

Former Tippecanoe County Clerk Christa Coffey is moving on to a new job in Indianapolis.

Posted: Jan 3, 2019 6:49 PM

LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) — After eight years as Clerk, Coffey is going to work for the Indiana Supreme Court. We asked what she's going to miss most about the job.

"The people," said Coffey. "The Tippecanoe County Courthouse is a family. So, you get really used to the people that you see every day. I've been emailing with a few of them and texting with a few of them."

She's also been making herself available to her replacement, Clerk Julie Roush.

"I've been taking calls for a few days now as she is learning and getting adjusted to where things are," said Coffey. "But she will do a great job, I have no doubt."

Coffey is joining the trial court technology group with the Indiana Supreme Court.

"So, initially I'll start off as a go live lead, so, when counties convert to the odyssey system, I'll be going on site to help the counties as they are training and are starting to use the system," said Coffey. 

It's fitting for a former clerk who managed to turn more than 20 years of paper documents into electronic files.

"Paper is the most dangerous way we can keep our permanent records. So, everybody got on board and I'm happy to say that by the time I left there were just ten or 15 boxes of paper records that still had to be scanned for the county," said Coffey. 

She's excited for her new role but when asked if she would ever consider the old one again, she didn't rule it out. 

"I don't see myself running for the office again but never say never," said Coffey. 

Coffey is still going to live in Tippecanoe County and commute to her new job in Indy.
