I have served as Board Secretary/Business Manager of the Nevada Community School District since November 1996 (under four superintendents and numerous School Board members). Prior to becoming Business Manager here, I worked as an accountant at the State Treasurer’s Office and Finance Director at City Hall in Storm Lake, Iowa.
I am originally from Colo, Iowa, where I graduated from High School (when it was still Colo High School). I then attended Marshalltown Community College and Iowa State University where I earned my BBA in Accounting. I have received authorization from the State of Iowa to serve as a School Business Official and must receive continuing education to continue this certification. In the Fall, 2013, I also received certification nationally from the Association of School Business Officials as a Certified Administrator of School Finance and Operations.
My hobbies include reading, computers and watching athletic events, either live or on TV. My family includes Vicki, my wife, my kids, Molly, Erik, and Alyssa, and three stepsons, Zac, Thad, and John.
