Natalie Fravel

I was first elected to office as Delaware County Clerk of Common Pleas Court in 2016 after working in the Clerk’s offices for over fourteen years.  My main responsibilities were in the Clerk’s Title Division and serving the customers and dealerships of the Satellite Title Office in Lewis Center.  Since taking office, I have become an active member of the Ohio Clerk of Courts Association.  I have also volunteered for over 35 years in many capacities for my church and community organizations.  I was born and raised here in Delaware County.  I graduated from Delaware Hayes High School and Ohio Wesleyan University.  I am proud to serve my hometown community as Clerk of Common Pleas Court.
