Pam joins CESO with over 20 years of experience working within school finance in Minnesota districts. A true Minnesotan at heart, she grew up in Duluth and earned her accounting degree from the University of Minnesota-Duluth. Pam also holds a School Finance and Operations (SFO) certification.
In addition to spending the past 12 years as Finance & Human Resources Manager for Eastern Carver County Schools, she has also served in roles such as Payroll Director for Minneapolis Public Schools, Accounting Supervisor for Rosemount-Apple Valley-Eagan ISD 196 and Finance Project Manager for Burnsville School District. Prior to working in school finance, she was a controller for several private businesses in the Twin Cities.
A past winner of the annual MASBO School Business Official of the Year Award, she is passionate about mentoring other school finance professionals by building meaningful relationships. She thrives on finding what sparks each person's interest and developing a plan to help them achieve their goals.
Outside of work, she enjoys reading, playing pickeball and spending time with her three adult children and two grandchildren. She now escapes Minnesota winters whenever she can - usually in Florida - and is currently open to any feedback on how to improve her golf game.
