Her previous work experience includes ten years as Controller with Lutsen Mountains, many years operating her own bookkeeping business in support of various non-profit organizations in the area, a brief stint with the Cook County Economics Authority and most recently as Financial Coordinator for Cook County for the past three years.
Karen I.

The entire Board looks forward with great enthusiasm to welcoming and working with Karen and would like to thank Paula for her outstanding service in developing CCHE into an organization that has contributed greatly to the entire Cook County community. We wish Karen well in her new role and Paula a happy and prosperous retirement.
