I joined the RDI family in January 2012. I love playing with numbers and helping others understand the story numbers tell us. I also enjoy the personal satisfaction that comes from helping nonprofits from the inside. As a small-town girl from Colorado, I am happy to serve RDI in its effort to keep our rural communities strong and healthy. I received my BS in Accounting from the University of Colorado and practiced as a CPA there. I took a break from number crunching and traveled the US as a trainer for a financial literacy seminar. I met my farm-boy husband during a training gig in Iowa, and we moved to Oregon in 2004 on a whim. Best decision ever!
