About Me

I moved to Minnesota in January 1987 from Virginia Beach, VA. after serving in the Army.  I earned my undergraduate degree in accounting from Augsburg College and later earned a graduate certificate in finance from Augsburg.  My passion for public service was driven early in my career experiences within the not-for-profit sector.  In addition to my current role as Director of Finance at Boynton, my career in healthcare finance include leadership positions at Hennepin County Medical Center and Blue Cross Blue Shield, Minnesota.  Working at the University as a financial steward to help administer a healthy campus for students has been a rewarding part of my career.  My interests outside of work include spending quality time with my family, acrylic painting, fishing and coaching traveling baseball.
