Vice President of Finance, Lipscomb University
I have been involved with SACUBO for over 15 years. I have served on the Benchmarking Committee, Scholarship Committee, ad hoc Business Partner Relations Committee, and Small Institutions Constituent Committee. I currently serve SACUBO and its members as 3rd Vice President. I have also spoken at SACUBO conferences on technical accounting topics and Lean Six Sigma.
I oversee one of the busiest and best recording studios in Music City (Nashville, TN) as Executive Liaison.
SACUBO provides a great opportunity to make new friends and network with industry peers. You can grow both professionally and personally by getting involved with SACUBO. Get involved today! I would love to meet you!
Assistant Vice Provost for Distance Education Administration, University of Arkansas
I attended three years of CBMI from 2008-2010 and have been attending SACUBO Conferences since 2010. I have been a member, Vice Chair, and Chair of the Research Universities Constituent Committee from 2017-2020. I was also a member of the Professional Development Committee and SACUBO Board during 2019-2020. I was Chair of the Distinguished Service Committee, a Planning Committee member and presenter at the Women’s Leadership Forum, and I helped with marketing and communications (including the LinkedIn site) for SACUBO in 2020-2021. For the 2021-2022 year, I am Co-Chair of the Professional Development committee, a member of the SACUBO Board, and still handling the SACUBO LinkedIn page.
I have boy/girl twins who are 17. I have lots of twins in my family, and one of my family members has two sets of twins. I also love to travel! I have been to several foreign countries and 48 states with the goal of visiting all 50 with my immediate family.
I regularly attend the SACUBO conferences and workshops, so I wanted to help shape the agenda and continue the high standards. The more you put into SACUBO as a volunteer, the more you will get out of it. Your institution will ultimately benefit as you build your network of higher education colleagues. Volunteering with SACUBO is a great way to give back and help an organization that benefits us all.
Assistant Dean for Finance and Administration, Medical University of South Carolina
I have served on the Best Practices Committee, Audit Committee, and Research Universities Constituent Committee. I am Chair of the Best Practices Committee this year.
I serve as a venue manager at multiple venues in Charleston for weddings and special events. Charleston is the number two locations for weddings behind Las Vegas!
Volunteering with SACUBO is a great opportunity to meet colleagues from other institutions to share information. Having these contacts is invaluable in our roles as leaders in our institutions!
Senior Vice President of Business and Finance / Chief Financial Officer, Morehouse College
I have attended Fall Workshops and Annual Meetings in the past. I began participating in professional development opportunities with SACUBO when I began my career in higher education back in the early 2000’s. I currently serve as a Board Member At-Large and on the Membership Committee. I am very excited about engaging and serving the SACUBO community.
My journey to the CFO position came via the role of internal audit not the typical ranks through business and finance functions.
SACUBO is a premier organization for higher education, with specific focus on all facets related to business and finance. It is THE organization for the southern region that supports business officers in all aspects of what we do. Opportunities to learn and become aware of our evolving industry is boundless. Being able to establish connections with fellow SACUBO colleagues is invaluable and can provide a level of support that is matchless. I plan to do my part in advancing the profession and more importantly whatever I can that may be of help or assistance to others.
