Chief Financial Officer / Chief Operations Officer
Sandy joined Carlsen in 2004 as Chief Financial Officer and was promoted to Chief Operating Officer in 2005. Sandy’s collaborative and entrepreneurial approach to strategic planning and problem solving has been an invaluable asset for the company. She is adept at seizing new business opportunities and her strong management and financial skills have been instrumental in ensuring that Carlsen operations and departments are efficient and seamlessly integrated. She is responsible for oversight of Carlsen’s client and vendor agreements and other legal matters, search process guidelines, and all financial and HR reporting and compliance.
Sandy is an accounting professional with more than 20 years of experience in public accounting for a wide variety of industries. Prior to her twelve years at Carlsen, she owned and operated her own firm for seven years providing various consultative services to many startups and existing, thriving businesses. She has a bachelor’s degree in accounting from The University of Wyoming and is a certified public accountant.
When not dotting the i’s, crossing the t’s and making sure things all add up, Sandy likes to spend time with her husband of 30 years, Joe, wonderful kids, Niko and Calli, Maverick the Labrador and 6 savvy, not-so-feral-anymore cats who are loved by all (including Maverick). Her multiple hobbies include biking, hiking, tennis, gardening, reading, writing, volunteering, home improvement projects, cooking and watching sports. The latest buzz is that Sandy has decided to take a stab (not sting) at beekeeping.
