Welcome to our new Controller, Noel Mechau!
Noel feels fortunate to have been born and raised in Santa Rosa. She graduated from Sonoma State University with her BS in Business Administration / Accounting and an emphasis on Philosophy, as well. Specializing in the hospitality industry she earned her CPA while working for Pannell, Kerr, Forrester in Seattle, WA. Her most recent position was as Controller and HR Director at the Oakmont Golf Club. Prior to that, she served in a similar position at the Fountain Grove Inn, Hotel & Restaurant.
Noel believes that “accounting is a team sport” and that each team member’s contribution is necessary for an optimally functioning organization. She feels that each of us has a unique role which makes communication and collaboration of paramount importance. Her dedication to the Foundation’s mission is reinforced by her deep roots and love of Sonoma County.
