How would you describe your role, purpose or the outcomes you drive?

In my role as the Accounting Manager, I manage the monthly close, expense analysis and account reconciliation process to ensure accurate financial information is presented and can be used to drive business decisions.

How has your previous work experience prepared you for your role with Salo?

My previous work experience is primarily with privately-held, family businesses, which sets me up well to work at Salo. In those organizations I have learned flexibility to work with a varying degree of detail and difficulty, accountability by working with all levels of management in an organization and ownership of projects taking them from start to finish by collaborating with colleagues along the way.

How would your friends describe you?

My friends would describe me as loyal, honest and fun.

List three interesting things about you, but only one of them needs to be true.

I have gone camping in the BWCA. I have been parasailing multiple times. I love running.

What is your favorite thing about working at Salo?

I love the whole atmosphere! Everyone is so welcoming and nice and it’s like a party everyday with the music playing!
