Billi Jo Woyma

Clerk of Courts

Cuyahoga County Clerk's Office


Billie Jo has always seen herself working in Public Service because she enjoys working with people and helping those she can. She began her position as Clerk of Courts in October of 1997.

When nominator, Nailah Byrd, thinks of employees whom she can undoubtedly count on, she thinks of Billie Jo. Her flexibility and willingness to learn about various agency functions is valued by the Clerk's Office. Billie Jo demonstrates the patience, diligence, and exceptional performance we all strive for daily.

“Survivor” would be the simple, but fitting, title for a biography written about Billie Jo.

Billie Jo has two sons and one daughter. She is the proud grandmother of three grandsons and one granddaughter.
