I started with Linn-Mar Community School District in May of 2013. Prior to that I served for five years as the Business Manager/Board Secretary at Grinnell-Newburg Community School District. Before entering the world of K-12 education I worked in public accounting doing audit and tax work. I graduated from the University of Northern Iowa in 2004 (Go Panthers!), and attained my CPA designation in 2006. Organizations that I am a part of include Iowa Association of School Business Officials (IASBO), Association of School Business Officials International, Iowa Society of CPA’s, Marion Chamber of Commerce, and Veritas Church in Cedar Rapids.
My wife Tara and I have three children Jackson, Grady, and our daughter Reese. All of our kids are in the Linn-Mar “pipeline,” and have had tremendous experiences thus far. My wife is also the Guidance Secretary at Linn Grove Elementary School. Safe to say that our whole family has embraced Lion Nation!
