I have been an accountant for over 45 years. I have a BS degree in Accounting from Northern Illinois University which, at the time I attended, had one of the top 15 Accounting programs in the country. In my senior year I qualified for an Honors program allowing me to go to work for one of the top 4 accounting firms in Chicago. I have experience with CPA firms, Independent Consulting and a wide variety of businesses including Development Firms and A/E/C Firms. Now I am the Controller for Millennium. What I love about Millennium are the interactions I have with people at all levels and anything that provides me the opportunity to teach someone how what I do can actually make their job easier. The comradery that exists between and among all levels of personnel as well as the cooperation in getting the job done for the client makes Millennium unique. In my free time, I enjoy reading about American History, especially the time leading up to and the Civil War itself to gain insight into the minds of the people during this tumultuous time in our history.
