Prior to her terms as a Greene County Commissioner, Snyder served as a senior aide to U.S. Rep.

As Deputy District Director for the 20th Congressional District, Snyder oversaw an office with a budget of more than $1 million.

In the 1980s, Snyder served as the Chief Office Deputy in the Greene County Sheriff’s Office for six years.

As an elected official, Snyder remains active in many political, professional and civic roles.

Snyder also serves on the Greene County Eldercare Board and the Greene County Criminal Justice Advisory Board. In November 2008, the Pennsylvania Federation of Democratic Women honored Snyder with an Outstanding Elected Democratic Woman award. She was among 14 women selected from across the state to receive the honor.

A graduate of Jefferson-Morgan High School, Snyder received in March 2008 an honorary Bachelor of Arts from Waynesburg University, and in May 2008, she attended the County Leadership Training Institute at New York University’s Wagner Graduate School of Public Service.
