Oneida County UW-Extension and Northwoods Saves announced the addition of Cheryl Boyd as the new Northwoods Saves Counseling Coordinator and Tracy Beckman as the new Northwoods Saves Volunteer and Program Coordinator.
Northwoods Saves is a personal financial counseling non-profit operating under the auspices of Oneida County UW-Extension in Rhinelander.
Boyd has been a resident of Rhinelander for 17 years. She has a Human Services Degree and experience working with individuals and families through her work as a Family Visitor for Family Resource Connection. Boyd has a passion for helping to motivate individuals to be successful in life. She will be an asset to the Northwoods Saves Program which helps residents save.
“As I was growing up, I had to learn to budget so I bring personal as well as professional experience to the position,” Boyd said.
Boyd is eager to put her experience to use learning the program and helping clients save.
Beckman was born and raised in Rhinelander and after pursuing her education, returned in 1996.
It was then that she began working at the Northwoods United Way and has been the agency’s Executive Director for the past 14 years. Beckman has experience in fund and program development and is also eager to put her experience to work growing and developing Northwoods Saves.
“I am looking forward to working with clients and businesses to help residents in our community learn to save,” Beckman said.
