Diana Meyer: Clerk of Court helps keep judicial system running smoothly

Behind the scenes at the Moffat County Combined Courts a team of unseen workers keeps the judicial system well-oiled.

Led by Clerk of Court Diana Meyer, the clerk's office is responsible for maintaining court records, helping judges with the administration and much more.

"We are doing our part as the clerk's office to provide unbiased and efficient assistance to help people with their cases," said Meyer, noting that clerks cannot provide legal advice but can help people with the procedural aspects of their cases.

Originally from Idaho, Meyer moved to Craig with her husband, Kenneth, and two sons in 1981 and has been here ever since.

"I think it's a pretty safe place to live and to have a family and there's a lot of good people in Craig that we're friends with," she said. "In a big city you don't get that."

In 1989, Meyer started working in the clerk's office — a job she said she was proud of and enjoyed due to the diversity and challenges of day-to-day work.

"I wouldn't be here for 27 years if I wasn't (proud)," she said.

Susie Aiken, one of Meyer's deputy clerks, has been working at the courts almost as long as Meyer and said the clerk's office operates very efficiently.

"Diana keeps our office running very smoothly," Aiken said.

It’s an accomplishment Meyer said she credits to her staff.

"I've got a lot of really knowledgeable people, a lot of experience," she said.

When she isn't working, Meyer's and her husband enjoy experiencing the vast outdoor activities Colorado has to offer.

"Hunting, snowmobiling, cross-country skiing, hiking, we used to spend vacations up at Trapper Lake when the kids were growing up, camping, lots of camping," she said.

Meyer said although she loves Craig, she and her husband might move to the Front Range when they retire so they can be closer to their two sons and six grandchildren.

"As you get older, it would be nice to be closer to your children and grandchildren," she said.
