I have spent most of my career in banking, working first at SunTrust Bank in Miami, FL and then Old Kent Financial Corp. in Grand Rapids, MI..  Next, I had a four-year stint as the CFO of a Christian university, Cornerstone University, in Grand Rapids, MI and then re-entered banking as the CFO of two sister community banks (The Bank of Holland and The Bank of Northern Michigan) and their holding company (Lake Michigan Financial Corp.).  My experience and expertise has been in financial reporting, financial modeling, balance sheet management, bond portfolio management, wholesale funding strategies, derivatives and hedging, and product pricing and profitability analysis. In my current role as Chief Financial Officer and Chief Administrative Officer of the Notre Dame Federal Credit Union, I oversee the Accounting, Human Resources, and Information Technology departments and work with the Executive Team on overall management of the institution. It is a great job!
