Brice Christian Academy, Brice, Ohio                                                                                       2008-2016



In this position I acted as the administrator and chief financial officer of this growing chartered, non-public school. During my tenure, the Brice Christian Academy (BCA) enjoyed a 22% increase in enrollment and a 74% increase in operating income. As I provided primary day to day operational oversight, my responsibilities included:


¨       the design, implementation, and oversight of a $1.2M budget

¨       the recruitment, hiring, payroll/benefit, and human resource management of 35 state licensed and support personnel

¨       coordination of marketing and communication strategies to increase enrollment and current family satisfaction and support

¨       ordering, inventory, and asset management of curriculum, equipment, operational supplies, and capital purchases

¨       identification and pursuit of new income streams, such as grant opportunities to enhance academic opportunities for student and staff support


Position Highlights:


v      While at Brice I oversaw the fiscal growth of the school, taking what had been a deficit budget of approximately $700,000 to a $1.2M fiscal plan with a $300,000 net profit. In addition I expanded the use of technology in the school, both by securing over $100,000 in new hardware, as well as with the implementation of new student information software for parents and administration. The BCA has seen significant capital improvements to the physical plant, as well as upgrades in texts and curriculum.

While involved in this growing program, I implemented a new summer day camp program to provide child care for working parents in the community.  The responsibilities included budgeting, hiring, scheduling, ordering/purchasing, payroll, and human resource management for more than a dozen staff and 75 campers over 55 hours per week.

I was also involved in the planning and subsequent successful move from a small, 100 year-old building to a new worship and classroom setting in the local high school prior to the completion of a new facility. I also sat on the building team assisting in the design and pre-construction process for a new 33,000 square foot facility which was subsequently completed on time, on budget, and without change orders.
