Roberta is the Director of Finance and Administration at the ACLU Kansas. Roberta’s career as a Finance Director has taken her from Kansas City to the San Francisco Bay Area and back again. She has experience running the accounting and finance departments for organizations in several industries including manufacturing, construction and the arts. Most recently, Roberta and her daughter ran a twelve-room bed and breakfast in the White Mountains of New Hampshire.
