With 40 years of professional experience, Ms. Micklos retired in 2009, having been Director of Human Services at the Department of Corrections in Brentwood, NH since 1989.

From 1995 to 2000, Ms. Micklos simultaneously served New Hampshire as a Rockingham County special sheriff's deputy and as a police officer in the Newfields Police Department. During those five years, she spent her time responding to calls, providing security, interviewing suspects and victims, writing reports, and presenting seminars throughout the community. She has been a team leader with Destination Imagination Competitions since 2015, been on church mission trips to Mozambique, Africa since 2012, and was on prison ministry team to regional youth detention centers beginning in 2009, and a member of the New Hampshire Sex Offender Management Advisory Committee since 2004.

An active presence in her community, Ms. Micklos acted as a trustee of the Newfields Community Church from 1994 to 2000 and a member of numerous organizations including the Task Force on Victim Restitution in Rockingham County, NH, from 1992 to 2000, the Advisory Task Force with the New Hampshire Council of Churches in 1992, and the Government's Council on Volunteerism in Seacost, NH, from 1990 to 1993.

Prior to obtaining this position, she was a psychiatric counselor with the Portsmouth Pavilion from 1988 to 1989, admissions coordinator with Horizon Hospital in San Antonio, TX, in 1988, and public education director of the Alamo Area Rape Crisis Center from 1986 to 1988.

Earlier in her career, Ms. Micklos was a fitness instructor and gymnastics coach at Victor Valley College from 1977 to 1979, and she was a physical education teacher with Terrell Wells Middle School from 1969 to 1970.

Ms. Micklos began her career as a student at the University of Northern Colorado, obtaining a Bachelor of Arts in education in 1969.

In 1983, she achieved the U.S. Government Security Clearance: SECRET from the U.S. Department of State.

With extensive experience as a victim advocate and public educator in the field of sexual assault, the transition to working with offenders meant Ms. Micklos could bring a grounded understanding to that population. Notably, she initiated an intensive program to expose inmates to the initial and long-term devastating effects of crime on their victims. The information became personal and the hope was for fact-based reflection before deciding to re-offend. She considers this work to be the highlight of her career.

She was a member of the American Correctional Association from 1988 to 2009 and the American Jail Association from 1988 to 2009. Additionally, she is a life member of Sigma Kappa Sorority.
