Emerging from a background of 10 years in commercial banking which began with a position as a part-time teller and ending as an Operations Officer, Chandra believed the banking world was her chosen career for life while living in San Francisco. In 1986, Chandra relocated to Arizona to be closer to her parents. Chandra entered her second career as a hotel accountant at Westcourt in the Buttes, until her sister told her about a friend who had just started a new company and was looking for a staff accountant. After exactly 10 years in the hotel industry, Chandra joined the HOM, Inc. team July 12, 1995, thus embarking on her third career.
Following 20 years of working in the world of traditional finance, Chandra adds to her career knowledge and understanding of federal grants, fund accounting, and HUD accounting as the current Chief Financial Officer of HOM, Inc.
As in any small business, Chandra performs many tasks above and beyond her scope as CFO of the company. Along with managing the company finances, at any given time during and after business hours, you will find her assisting with the front desk, processing and mailing the checks for the monthly HAP run, while also processing payroll - quite often all at once! Complimenting those duties, in her spare time, Chandra also manages the Human Resource Department for HOM, Inc.
Chandra deeply enjoys working for HOM, Inc. and is grateful to have entered her third and final career with a company whose mission statement encompasses the success and virtues that she truly believes in.
In the spirit of the HOM, Inc. mission statement, Chandra also finds time to give back to her community. Chandra currently volunteers as a Career Coach for Fresh Start Women's Foundation. In 2009, Chandra joined the Women’s Business Enterprise Council - West (WBEC-West) as a volunteer.
Chandra holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Business Administration from the University of Phoenix. She is an avid golfer, loves traveling, and enjoys spending time with her three grandsons, Dimetres, Dominik and Dru and granddaughter, Janae.
