I have always been interested in both music and math/accounting/process improvement and am able to enjoy both. During the day I am the financial process analyst for Aureon HR in West Des Moines, IA, with a wide variety of responsibilities. The rest of the time I balance teaching piano and accompanying students at Simpson, maintaining a small private piano studio, and choral conducting and keyboardist at my church. My husband and I participate in Simpson’s international student host program. A native of Fargo, ND, my career as a CPA included challenging roles such as executive director of one of the state CPA societies, corporate controller at Nashville International Airport, and CFO of a Des Moines company. I have also taught various accounting courses for the graduate school at Belmont University (Nashville TN) and AIB (Des Moines) and love to read professional journals. I am a candidate for the Chartered Global Management Accountant (CGMA) designation and hope to complete that milestone soon.
