I serve as the Controller/Executive Assistant of the council. As the Controller, I primarily direct all aspects of accounting operations and oversee the development of the financial accounting systems required to maintain reporting requirements. I also coordinate, administer, and control financial operations. In my Executive Assistant role, I am mainly responsible for performing confidential secretarial and administrative type duties including preparing minutes of board meetings.
I am married to Darrel Baker. We have two children, Isaac, 14 and Caleb, 13. My family and I are very active in our local Boy Scout Troop 44, where I serve as the Assistant Scoutmaster. While my boys were in Cub Scouts I served in their Pack as Assistant Cubmaster, Den Leader, and Popcorn Kernel. I started work at the council in October 2017. Before coming to work here I was an Accounting Tech at a large public accounting firm here in Rapid City and worked there for over 11 years. I’ve also worked as an Accounting Operations Manager at a not-for-profit in Steamboat Springs, CO.
When I’m not working or volunteering in my Boy Scout unit I enjoy camping, fishing and hiking. I also enjoy trap and skeet shooting.
