Learn to use budgeting as another tool for you to tell the story of your organization’s plans, priorities, and aspirations.

About the Presenters

I like to think everyone has a little financial analyst in themselves. I’ve spent much of my career helping organizations develop financial plans, understand costs, and implement change. I really enjoy the inquisitive nature of learning something new and solving problems. Although most of my professional career has been in the for-profit community, I’ve appreciated the opportunity to contribute to and learn from the nonprofit community over the past few years. I find working within the nonprofit community to be fulfilling and connected to who I am. I received my MBA from Embry-Riddle University and am on the boards of COMPAS, Inc., a nonprofit putting creativity into the hands of Minnesotans, and First Universalist Church of Minneapolis. When I am not working, you can find me with a golf club in my hand or doing some type of sports activity.
