I started my journey in the printing industry in 2000 as the accounting clerk for Technigraphics while obtaining my BBA with a major in accounting from the University of Iowa. I eventually moved into the administrative assistant position, project management, human resources and eventually general manager. When Rapids Reproductions acquired Technigraphics, I took over as the branch manager for the Iowa City location. I really loved the challenge this new position brought and thoroughly enjoyed the relationships I built with clients over the years. In the beginning of 2020 I began my transition into the controller position. It was a roundabout journey to get to this position, but I would not trade it for anything. My ability to know every facet of the business is a tremendous advantage for my current position. It also helps that I still get to see and talk with clients now and then and I am available to the staff for any help they may need with day to day operations.
Outside of work, I enjoy catching a baseball game when I can, whether it is the Cedar Rapids Kernels or the Chicago Cubs, attending performances at Theatre Cedar Rapids, playing Bingo and spending time with friends and family.
