Gillian left Washington in order to join Metke as Accounting Manager in 2020 and has a BS in Accounting and an MBA from Western Governors University. She developed a passion for construction accounting while working for a property development company in Buckley, WA, but left to pursue education goals when the market took a downturn. While studying she worked in a number of industries, but always felt drawn back to construction.
Being able to work with a team full of craftsmen and artists is a dream come true for Gillian, and hopes that their creativity will rub off on her. In turn, she plans to use her technical skills to develop systems that enable them to be focused on designing and building dreams instead of paperwork.
Gillian strongly believes in the power of providing excellent service to both customers and co-workers, and she is passionate about streamlining processes and lifelong learning. She is thrilled to be joining the Metke team and exploring Oregon.
