I joined the Peter Kiewit Foundation in 2015. As Director of Finance, I lead the finance function with the Foundation’s Corporate Trustee and support the Foundation team by advising on grantmaking processes and procedures and related compliance.
Prior to joining the Foundation, I spent 8 years working in public accounting and specialized in providing accounting, auditing, and consulting services to nonprofit organizations and privately held companies. I also focused on auditing, consulting, and tax compliance for employee benefit plans.
I grew up in Beatrice, Nebraska and earned a Master of Public Accountancy from the University of Nebraska – Lincoln in 2007 and a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration with a major in accounting and a minor in economics from the University of Nebraska –Lincoln in 2006. I became a Certified Public Accountant in 2010 and am a member of the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants and the Nebraska Society of Certified Public Accountants. I currently live in La Vista with my husband, Matt, and daughter, Vivian. Vivian is a busy one-year-old. She keeps Matt and I on our toes in our spare time.
