I am a Certified Public Accountant and currently the City Administrator for the City of Osage Beach. As City Administrator, I manage the day to day operations of the City government and lead a 12 person Management Team overseeing a total of 103 full-time and 24 part-time employees. Together we manage a budget of nearly $30 million in annual expenditures. I have been with the City of Osage Beach since 2002 holding other positions such as Staff Accountant and Assistant City Administrator.
As part of my role with the City, I am also a member of numerous community boards and committees such as the Lake of the Ozarks Regional Economic Development Council (LOREDC), Lake Ozark / Osage Beach Joint Sewer Board, Lake of the Ozarks Council of Local Governments (LOCLG) Economic Development Advisory Committee (EDAC), and the Columbia College Lake of the Ozarks Advisory Committee.
In addition to my work in City government, I have been a small business owner for several years. I play an active co-ownership role in my family's small restaurant and I have a small CPA practice. And, up until recently, I was an adjunct instructor for State Fair Community College. For six years I taught accounting and business classes.
I have a well rounded knowledge of business and accounting in addition to government and non-profit operations.
