Turrise, who has been working as interim director of human resources since March, began her new role Monday, according to Brunswick County Spokeswoman Amanda Hutcheson. Turrise has 16 years of experience in human resources, including nearly seven years with Brunswick County.

“Brunswick County has dedicated and hard-working employees, and I’m excited to continue offering them support in new ways,” Turrise said. “I look forward to implementing new programs and processes to further assist our staff in their daily operations.”
