Annie Howard is settling into her new accountant position at the Carrington Headquarters office. She was hired to fill the position at the Carrington office left when the long-time accountant retired. Annie will oversee accounts payable and receivables and process the payroll for the district.
Annie was born and raised on a ranch in Minnewauken and received her Bachelor’s degree in Business Administration from Minot State University. As she comes to Garrison Diversion with an extensive background in business management, Annie will be a major asset to the accounting department.
Annie worked with public assistance and hazard mitigation for Spirit Lake Emergency Management in 2009, which in turn led to a position with FEMA (Federal Emergency Management Agency). With FEMA, Annie helped with individual assistance and hazard mitigation as she was deployed to multiple disaster areas, including Hurricane Sandy in New York.
“As I begin in this position, I understand there is much to learn about each facet of Garrison Diversion,” says Annie. “I hope to take advantage of each opportunity I’m given to learn and grow within the organization.” Annie commutes from Sheyenne, where she also serves on the Sheyenne Water Board. Her hobbies include horses, cooking, and volunteer work.
“We are thankful to have Annie on board at the office,” says Duane DeKrey. “Her strong business background after working with multiple agencies in various capacities will largely benefit Garrison Diversion.”
