“I am passionate for projects and finances and have worked both in the technology and nonprofit environments,” says Ms. James, who has also gained top-notch financial management expertise from the two decades she has worked in the telecom and retail industries. Ms. James brings her wealth of knowledge and experience to her current position at MBC, a nonprofit religious organization ministering to the local community through varying service opportunities and outreach ministries.
As financial administrator, Ms. James uses her broad spectrum of skills in nonprofit finance management to execute all of the organization’s financial and project functions, including budgeting, accounts payable and vendor relations. A born leader and a true and distinguished professional, she is continuously developing new processes for improvement to both strengthen her already solid skill set and bolster the efficiency of the organization.
Throughout her career, Ms. James has consistently made outstanding contributions to her employers, including a conceptual idea she presented in which two separate organizations were merged, resulting in a significant decrease in production defects. Among these endeavors, Ms. James considers her current work to be the most fulfilling. “Making a difference in people’s lives is what makes it rewarding: being able to provide programs to assist and teach children and adults to have a better outcome in this life and the next,” she says.
