I joined the UMVRDC as the Finance Officer in June 2016. I have a Bachelor of Science degree in both Accounting and Business Administration from Southwest Minnesota State University. Prior to being hired as the Finance Officer, I worked in the nonprofit sector for Pioneer Public Television for 10 years and have experience with individual and corporate taxes. My wife, I and our three children reside in Benson, where our young children keep us very busy. As a family we enjoy everything about the outdoors, archery, camping, gardening and spending time at the lake. I am excited to be a part of the UMVRDC and assist in the development of this region.
