Lisa Ramsey, who has worked for a series of nonprofits, said each is different. She started at Prairie View, which provides mental health services, earlier this month.
I'm getting my feet on the ground, learning all their ways, she said.
Ramsey, 45, grew up in central Iowa and earned a degree from Ottawa University in Ottawa, Kan. She worked for real estate and software companies in Kansas City and Lawrence before taking a job as a budget manager for her alma mater.
She took a job as business manager for the student health center at Iowa State, then moved to Eureka, Kan., for a job as chief financial officer of Greenwood County Hospital. At Prairie View shes in charge of the business office, patient accounts and information systems department.
When I first visited here and met the people and saw their mission and the impact it makes on people, that really motivated me, she said. Its a special place, and they do a lot of good. Im just thrilled to be part of it.
Ramsey, who has two sons, said she likes visiting Colorado and sitting on the beach.
