We warmly welcome Hannah Mercier, who joined the Council staff as Accounting Manager in October of 2021. Hannah brings a wealth of nonprofit financial management experience to the Council. In addition to financial accounting, she will manage payroll and employee benefits.
In addition to her role at the Council, Hannah runs a small accounting business, which she launched a few years ago. Hannah received her Bachelor of Science degree from Upper Iowa University, and after several years of accounting in different industries decided to focus primarily on the nonprofit sector.
Hannah succeeds Sue Cowan, who retired last fall after nine years in the role. Sue was a big part of the Council’s growth and success during her time with the organization, and we were fortunate to have her on board. Sue plans a busy retirement during which she will continue running an ice arena in Oregon with her family, beekeeping and much more.
