How do you deal with a boss who is jealous of your progress?

A new Operations Manager was hired several months ago at the company I work for. I love what I do and have no intrest in being tied down to a desk, yet it seems she is worried about me. I produce more work than anyone else on the team and now she wants to tag along with me, so she can take credit in the events and functions I coordinate. She wants me to complete task and overwhelms me with side jobs when she can not be around to monitor what I am doing and when she can tag along hands them to someone else. I have thought about quitting because I do not need a babysitter but why should I let her ruin my carrer, I love! Help.... what should I do in this situation? She has a degree in Biology and we are in a social service field. The other employees openly share their disgust for her views. (The org I work for has assistance for furnishings after Hurricane Katrina and she insist on buying mattresses that have p*e stains, tables with broken legs and sofas that have silver tape holding the fabrics together.) I refuse to provide client's with these items because that does not show them any dignity and the money does not belong to me anyway. Why not help someone with items that will last? The case managers agree with me more than do with her and she takes their comments to heart and because they favor my leadership skills, take her anger and fears out on me. ....... I did not mention this but she came into the picture from another org because the director has a crush on her not based on what proffessional experience she has. What would be the best steps to bring the attention to our CEO without causing more problems along the way?

If it don't work, or she decides to grow a second head. bust her out in front of her boss. Start with diplomacy, then roll... More

intimidate them physically, and go over their head whenever possible to put doubts about them in their bosses heads

Stay civil, when roles are reversed, then you can take more personal liberties. Don't them squash you before you get to the top, play along

If there is another department at your job try posting out. Your boss can be your best friend or your worst enemy.
