Professional Profile

I have served the City of St. Johns since October 2018 and served in this same role at another municipality since April 2015.  Prior to serving as Treasurer/Finance Director I worked in public accounting as an auditor for 15 years. The Treasurer/Finance Director reports directly to the City Manager. The Finance Department provides comprehensive financial services and support to the City government, recommends financial policies to the City Manager, maintains excellence in the accounting of all financial transactions, provides support to City departments with financial, budgetary and procurement issues, and retains and enhances the public’s confidence with respect to the City’s management of public finances.

I lead a very experienced team. I am committed to a high level of fiscal responsibility and providing timely, quality, courteous and useful information to City officials and residents. The Finance Department includes the accounting, budgeting, purchasing, investing, water and sewer billing and collections, payroll processing, assessing, and treasury functions.

I am a member of the Michigan Municipal Treasurers Association (MMTA), Michigan Government Finance Officers Association (MGFOA), and Government Finance Officers Association (GFOA). I have a Bachelor of Science in Accounting and Finance from Cedarville University.
