“Each of us has the opportunity to change and grow until our very last breath. Happy creating.” –M.F. Ryan.
Many or you have worked with Jessica Taylor through NFP Partners or in the Colorado non-profit finance community. Recently Jessie decided to take on an opportunity for change and growth in both her career and with her family. While her tasks at NFP Partners are not yet complete, Jessie and her family have already relocated to California and will be transitioning out of client services by mid-summer. Jessie has been instrumental in the growth of outsourced accounting services provided by NFP Partners. She will be missed by the team, as well as by the clients she served. We wish her the best of luck as she is “happy creating” her future.
With the departure of Jessica came the opportunity to hire Stephanie Underwood. Stephanie brings over six years of experience in nonprofit accounting services. She holds a Master of Science in accountancy from Keller Graduate School of Management. Stephanie enjoys helping nonprofits in their financial decision making by providing day-to-day accounting services as well as Controller and CFO-level services. She has a talent for process improvement and efficiency, and likes to develop processes and procedures where improvement is necessary. One thing Stephanie is looking forward to in her position with NFP Partners is becoming an MIP Fund accounting software guru. As partners with the software, she feels that being able to add support to organizations using the software will be very beneficial for the clients and NFP.
An Iowa native, Stephanie currently lives in Thornton with her husband and son. In her free time, she enjoys watching her son play sports, training for half-marathons, and playing golf with her husband.
Also joining us this month is Makalah Emanuel as our marketing associate. Makalah recently graduated from the University of Northern Colorado with a Bachelor of Arts in journalism with emphasis in public relations and advertising. She will take on responsibility for editing our newsletter, maintaining our website, utilizing social media and supporting all of NFP’s marketing and public relations activities.
We are excited about the future and our opportunity to “create” at NFP Partners.
