Schulte led the reorganization of the company’s billing and collections department, completing a project that was two years behind in just 90 days. She also organizes her co-workers and keeps in tune to their needs, helping organize retreats and supporting staff in their career endeavors.
Outside of work, Schulte offers her skills in numerous civic capacities, including as president of the Greater Ozarks Chapter Institute of Management Accountants, a facilitator for Dave Ramsey’s Financial Peace University and past president of the High Pointe Elementary PTA.

What are you doing to make the Ozarks better? I love facilitating Financial Peace sessions and watching people learn how to manage their money better. Everyone who learns to budget increases their charitable giving.
How many times do you hit the snooze button? When you have running partners as awesome as mine, you don’t need the snooze button.
What’s your most treasured possession? My wedding rings.
