Beverly joined NCHEMS in March of 2022. She is responsible for all accounting for NCHEMS, NMSI, and FSS.
Beverly has over 30 years of accounting experience in various industries including consulting, public schools, assisted living, importing, manufacturing, and capital management. Most recently she was with Vertiba, a Salesforce customization consulting firm that had government agencies as 50% of their clients. At Vertiba she saw all stages of a company from small start-up to acquisition by large multinational conglomeration to final dissolution following the earnout period.
Beverly was born in Cleveland OH, raised in the suburbs of Milwaukee Wi, then moved to San Diego CA, Sarasota FL, Boulder CO, Stockton CA, Corvallis, OR, and finally back to beautiful Boulder CO.
Beverly started at the University of Wisconsin – Madison in Nursing. However, when switching majors as a junior to pre-business resulted in her being put on waiting lists for all her business courses, she quickly realized she had to switch universities. She graduated from the University of Wisconsin – Milwaukee with a bachelor’s degree in Business Administration-Accounting. A much better major for her since, as a young girl, she would figure out with simple math what interest she would earn on her passbook savings account. Tellers were always amazed that she was within 1 to 2 pennies of the actual amount.
Growing up, Beverly’s family came out to Colorado almost every summer to camp in the Rockies. Now she along with her husband and 26-year-old daughter live in Boulder where they enjoy the view of the flatirons. She enjoys walking, learning about EVs (sparked by her purchase of a plug-in hybrid), reading Harry Potter fanfiction, watching Sci-Fi and HGTV home improvement shows, photography, and wandering around looking for cool stuff to help inspire her artwork. Unfortunately said artwork rarely actually is produced in any form other than in her head, but sometimes it makes it out in the form of silk paintings or cool cropping of photos.
Looking back on all the places I have worked, I most enjoyed those where the goal was to help people. I realize my skills are best at crunching numbers and not directly helping people, but by working for NCHEMS, I can make a difference in the world. NCHEMS’ emphasis of being a change agent for higher education and crafting solutions, can help students and institutions avoid some of the roadblocks I personally experienced. I am excited to join others that also enjoy crunching numbers to help achieve these goals.
