Staff of the Month: Matthew Hjelmhaug
As part of the team here at NeighborWorks® Rochester, Matthew Hjelmhaug leads the way as our Chief Financial Officer. Matthew plays a key role leading our financial team which includes overseeing the finances of the organization, loan servicing, payments, accounting, lending and developing financial reports for the Board of Directors. As a NeighborWorks® Rochester employee of 4 ½ years, he is a great benefit to the crew!
“I love that we help people directly and educate them,” replied Matthew to what he enjoyed most about working at NeighborWorks® Rochester. “People leave feeling better about their situation; we give people the tools to improve their lives.”
Matthew spends his spare time with family. This can involve a variety of activities ranging from playing Legos to walking. It can also include him keeping the kids from killing each other and enjoying some time at the Strong Museum!
“Home to me means a place where I can be myself.”
