Biography

Becky graduated from Minnesota State University, Mankato with a degree in Accounting. Over the next five years, Becky received her CPA license and worked in public accounting auditing and preparing tax returns for nonprofit organizations, rental properties, and other for-profit companies. 

Volunteering was an activity that Becky started at a young age and enjoyed.

While at Minnesota Council of Nonprofits, Becky managed all aspects of the organization’s accounting functions, coordinated financial management networking lunches, presented on a number of topics, and brought colorful charts to present financial information to the board, management team, and staff members. 

Becky joined WomenVenture in 2018 as their financial manager. Her role includes managing accounts payable and accounts receivable processes, reconciling balance sheet items and accounting software to donor software, and maintaining the outsourced timekeeping and payroll system to ensure that time is tracked and recorded for grant reporting.

When not at work, Becky likes to spend time playing with her kiddos, spouse, and friends and enjoying nature.
