I graduated from Southern Utah University with Bachelor of Science Degrees in both Accounting and Business Management. After graduating from Southern Utah University, I obtained a Master’s Degree in Public Administration from Brigham Young University.
I’ve spent over thirty years in governmental accounting. I started my career with the City of West Jordan where I worked for nineteen years. Thirteen of those years were spent serving as the Finance Director.
I started my own accounting business in 1988. I currently provide accounting services to three cities, two inter-local agencies and three special service districts.
I provide general financial services for URMMA as a whole. My accounting services include monthly reconciliations, annual budgets, financial reports for board meetings and year end closing entries for the annual audit. I also provide state compliance on reporting and transparency reporting.
I have spent the last year and a half working with URMMA and have enjoyed it very much. The staff has been great to work with. They make a great team and provide great service to their members.
