Based at UNB in Fredericton, Financial Administrator Tania Jones keeps close tabs on Springboard's finances. Tania looks after all the big, small, and minute details that ensure Springboard's financial situation is transparent, healthy and accountable. In addition to handling the operational funding and Innovation Mobilization Program disbursements to nineteen institutions throughout the network, Tania collects and consolidates the valuable metrics that are crucial to Springboard's planning and reporting processes. Having worked with Springboard since 2008, Tania is extremely knowledgeable about all aspects of the organization's funding structure, including what counts as an eligible expense and what must be included in a quarterly report.
Previously, Tania fine-tuned her financial expertise working for ten years in the private sector as senior accountant for a commercial real estate business who owned development properties as well as restaurants and eight subsidiary companies.
When she isn't managing the books, Tanis likes reading books but most of all, she enjoys spending time (and keeping up!) with her young son.
