As senior manager of finance and administration for StriveTogether, Jeri Duncan manages the day-to-day accounting transactions as well as develops and implements processes to monitor the organization’s financial health and streamlines operational processes.
Jeri grew up in Mason, Ohio, but as an adult she has lived in eight different states. As the wife of an Army soldier and mom to two active boys, she focused on personal career development by extensive volunteering with her children’s schools, Junior League and the Army, where she was awarded the Civilian Award for Patriotic Service.
A natural leader and entrepreneur, she has previously owned an organizing business helping individuals and facilitating church mission groups to help revitalize community shelters in Indianapolis. She has been hired as a public speaker and published in a magazine for her work. Volunteering on the board of the Junior League of Honolulu led her to being noticed and hired as executive director of the Oahu Veterans Center, where she oversaw a $2 million facility expansion and designed a strategic plan for the future of the organization.
Most recently as the accounting manager for a property management company in Columbia, South Carolina, she helped communities work through damage caused by the 100-year flood that devastated the city in 2015.
Having graduated in 2010 with her bachelor’s degree in accounting from University of Maryland University College, Jeri is currently a certified public accountant candidate with a plan to license by 2018.
