Compliance Director / Special Projects
Ann Allen Wimberly is Chief Administrative Deputy. Ann assists in supervising 45 employees in her office as well as the operations as a whole, but she is most proud of the working relationship that has been established within the clerk’s office and with the other court agencies.
“It takes a team to make our court system work efficiently, effectively and professionally. We are so very fortunate to have been blessed with a great working relationship with everyone involved in our system and that makes commitments, progress and resolutions almost effortless.”
Ann graduated from Southeastern Louisiana University with a degree in business administration. After owning her own business and working in the private sector in banking and the legal field, she served as Justice of the Peace and a Notary Public until she became employed at the Livingston Parish Clerk of Court’s Office.
Beginning as a minute clerk for Division B, she gained exposure to all sides of the court system – criminal and civil. Having accomplished the court system and intrigued by the record keeping needs of the clerk’s office, Ann became a department supervisor where she gained knowledge of budgets, human resources, and a more inclusive understanding of the entire operation of the office.
In 2009, along with the clerk, she was instrumental in lobbying the state legislature to make criminal court costs consistent across the state – a law that had not been visited in more than 100 years. 2010 offered her the opportunity to participate in a joint effort with her clerk and chief judge to finance, plan, and construct a new Livingston Parish courthouse. Ann was appointed project manager. The facility was opened for the Clerk of Court, Sheriff, District Attorney, and Judges in January 2015. The 110,000 square foot facility houses five courtrooms, a jury room, secured areas for employees, and more.
Ann has been designated as a Certified Deputy Clerk of Court by the Louisiana Clerks of Court Association. She attends educational conferences semiannually to stay apprised of changing laws and actions. She also completed and graduated in 2014 from a comprehensive program – Leadership Livingston – a program based on a national model used by chambers throughout the country to develop individuals as leaders within their communities.
Ann is a lifelong resident of Livingston Parish and was raised in Denham Springs, Louisiana. After marrying her husband, Mickey, she has lived all across the parish – from Holden, Denham Springs,Walker, and Livingston to Maurepas. She is a long time member of the First United Methodist Church in Denham Springs, Louisiana. She is also a member of the Livingston Parish Republican Women and remains an active Notary Public commissioned by the State of Louisiana.
