Vice President of Finance

I started at Goodwill in August 2009 as an Accounts Receivable Clerk. I was hired at Goodwill a week after graduating college and it's been my first and only adult job! Throughout the years, I've held every job in the Finance department before being promoted to the Vice President. I've also taken over the IT department in the recent years and have enjoyed being a part of the huge growth of technology throughout the company. In my position, I'm able to be a part of managing the funds Goodwill receives to ensure we can reinvest and grow the organizations mission impact.
