Director of Accounting
A self-proclaimed “badass at math,” Julie has been working in public accounting since she was 18, but has been around construction and trucking her entire life. She learned to drive a bulldozer for her father’s logging company at age 8 and basically grew up on job sites. Aside from Donovan, her life revolves around her family—her construction-foreman husband and her two young daughters, who can be competitive with each other (one wins), with their mother (mom wins) and with cheerleading (they both win).
In college, Jen Leppek knew one of the most important decisions in her life was to pick a profession she could really dig into. As an honor roll and Dean’s List student with an affinity for math, Jen realized Accounting was the career for her. She worked as cage cashier while in school and was hired by a small public accounting firm straight out of school. Once that firm grew into a larger CPA firm, she decided to embrace a new opportunity and joined the progressive team at Donovan.
Director of Technology
A current computer science student, Aaron Foelsch has an unparalleled ability to create efficient systems, and that’s just what he does for the Donovan team. He doesn’t wait around for something to slow down, rather he proactively seeks out ways to make projects run more efficiently through technology. Aaron is also an active musician, playing in the Reno band Fantastic Flying Foelschs.
Tracy Husbands knew from the moment he started building forts in his parents’ living room that he loved to construct things. We’re not talking a blanket fort here—Tracy nailed walls into the hardwood and cut up the coffee table to use as a roof. In his 40 years in the building and remodeling trade Tracy has built dams, bridges, water-treatment plants, more custom homes than he can count, and has been named Oregon Contractor of the Year. His favorite part of the job? Taking someone’s dream, putting it on paper, and then making it real.
