Joan Meekins, marketing director for Carroll County Department of Economic Development, said yesterday that she will leave next month to take a health care job.
Ms. Meekins, who also had been the county's tourism director, will work in marketing for Homecall Inc., a home health agency with offices statewide. Her last day with the county will be Aug. 18.
She will work with Homecall offices in Carroll, Howard, Harford and Baltimore counties and Baltimore City and will be based in Westminster, she said.
Ms. Meekins worked for the county for five years, starting as the tourism director in 1990. She moved to economic development in January and earned $33,014.
Previously, she worked in the health care field for 18 years.
County Commissioner W. Benjamin Brown said the county intends to fill the position of economic development marketing director after Ms. Meekins leaves.
