Frandanisa_Karen_LightenedFace400x600Meet financial whiz, Karen Frandanisa. The Herb Society is one of her favorite clients. “I believe in The Herb Society mission, love the beautiful building and grounds at headquarters and have wonderful people to work with,” she says.

Her job includes accounts payable, payroll and payroll tax reporting; recording deposits; reconciling cash and investments, preparing quarterly and annual financial reports; and handling the annual tax return.

In that role she strives to provide relevant, accurate financial information to the board and members.

She received her BS/BA degree in accounting from John Carroll University in University Heights, Ohio. She worked in public accounting for seven years, before spending the past 20 years in the private sector.

While she’s not practicing a green thumb, her favorite herb is basil.

Karen lives in Mentor, Ohio, with her husband Joe and two children, Steven and Katelyn. In her spare time she says she enjoys doing “pretty much any outdoor activity.”
