State of Kansas



I have worked for the State of Kansas for 25 years and am currently the Manager of the Statewide Payroll and Accounting section which is responsible for the daily Payroll and Finance production support and on-going payroll/finance systems maintenance, enhancements, and upgrades of the Statewide Oracle/PeopleSoft systems.  The State of Kansas utilizes Oracle/PeopleSoft HCM (known as SHARP) which was implemented in 1995 (v4.0) and is integrated with the Oracle/PeopleSoft Financials system (SMART) implemented in 2010. 

I began my career in payroll reconciliation and remittance then served as a business analyst on the Payroll Systems Team prior to being named Director of Payroll Services in 2008.  Since 2015 I have served as the Manager of the Statewide Payroll and Accounting section and serve on the management team for all Oracle/PeopleSoft upgrades at the State of Kansas.  Most recently, I served as the Project Director for the 2014/2015 FOCUS Project which included the upgrade of Finance to v9.2 and the transition of all statewide Oracle/PeopleSoft systems to a Hosted/Managed Services environment.

I am a graduate of the University of North Dakota with a Bachelor of Accountancy, am a Certified Public Accountant, and have completed the State of Kansas Project Management Training Program.    I serve on the Public Sector User Group Board holding the current position of VP of HRMS and participate in the Kansas City Regional Users Group.
