As C.O.O., Jessica is responsible for HPPR’s annual budgeting, overall financial and cash flow management, accounts payable and receivable, underwriting billing, contracts management, restricted accounts management, financial reporting to the HPPR board, and support for the annual outside audit.
Jessica has always had a passion for “numbers” and has held various accounting/financial roles ranging from banking to public accounting in her professional career. She’s been the Business Manager for High Plains Public Radio since April of 2005. In addition to managing the duties listed above, she feels fortunate to have also learned so much about every other department of HPPR. This is by far the most challenging and rewarding position she’s ever held.
When not working, Jessica enjoys athletic activities such as women’s volleyball and co-ed softball or just relaxing with a good book. But most importantly, she enjoys spending quality time with her husband, Craig, and her children, Jerica, Andrew and Connor. They enjoy traveling to new places and making wonderful memories together.
