I joined the university press world in 2007 after spending more than twenty years in public and private accounting. Thirteen of those years were with a multinational firm, which allowed me to travel internationally. I hold a BS in economics and accounting from Nebraska Wesleyan University and earned my CPA certification while at Deloitte. I grew up on a Nebraska farm and enjoy returning home to renew my country spirit.
I graduated with a BA in education from the University of Nebraska–Kearney and began my career in York, Nebraska, as an elementary school teacher and reading specialist for twenty-five years. Before coming to the press in 2007 I worked with the director of the UNL Child Care Center. At UNP I am part of the Business and Acquisitions Departments, and I’m proud to be a part of a team that publishes such outstanding books and journals.
I am a licensed certified public accountant and have a master’s degree in accounting from the University of Kansas and a master’s degree in business administration from Senshu University, Japan. I have more than nine years of combined accounting, cost accounting, and finance experience. I love numbers and accounting. I enjoy reading, cooking, being outside, traveling, and spending time with my family and friends. I enjoy foreign languages, and in fact I speak Mongolian, English, Russian, and Japanese. I like the fact that no two days are the same here at the press and that I get to work alongside a great team of people within the diverse and inclusive work environment of the University of Nebraska–Lincoln.
