Chief Financial Officer
John has more than twenty-five years of healthcare and social services experience, and has spent the majority of his career as a senior finance executive in large nonprofit hospitals throughout California. He earned a Master’s degree in Business Administration from University of California, Riverside, a Master of Arts degree from Andrews University, and a Bachelor of Arts degree from Walla Walla College.
Prior to joining the Aspiranet senior leadership team in 2010, John assisted a variety of organizations in implementing work redesign and process improvements that achieved significant savings. He was drawn to Aspiranet because he wanted to use his finance skills to help the agency expand its capacity to serve more at-risk youth and families, while maintaining its financial viability. John enjoys the challenges of fund accounting, and balancing the economic wellbeing of agency with the need to invest in program expansion.
“The Aspiranet core value that speaks most strongly to me is hope. Hope allows us to envision what the possibilities are along with the feeling that things will turn out for the best. It is one of the unique characteristics of humanity.”
