  • Elks Aidmore Welcomes New Finance Officer

    The Elks Aidmore Board of Directors recently approved the addition of a Finance Officer position to the Aidmore staff. Laura Nichols, a current employee of Elks Aidmore, assumed the new role on July 1 st . Laura came to Elks Aidmore in June 2017 as an Administrative Assistant. Prior to coming to us, she had over 10 years of experience in budgeting and accounting with the Fossey Gorilla Foundation (non-profit) in Atlanta. In December of 2020, she received a Bachelor of Business Administration from Mercer University, with a focus in accounting. She is currently enrolled in her MBA focusing on Healthcare Management.  Her anticipated graduation date with her MBA will be January 2023.

    Laura states, “It has been a great pleasure to have had the opportunity to work at Elks Aidmore over the last few years. The agency has an important mission focused on changing the lives of Georgia’s children in need, which can be an uphill battle filled with heartache and joy. I am grateful to have the opportunity to continue working with Abe Wilkinson and Dr. Vickey Hale in the new finance officer role. While we have many staff members and foster parents on the front lines fighting for the children in our care, there is a business aspect to what we do, and I am pleased to be a part of that rear guard, so to speak, in making sure we can continue to fulfill our mission for years to come.”

    Elks Aidmore CEO Abe Wilkinson added, “We are excited to have Laura move into this new position. Over the past four years, she has gained significant understanding of the Aidmore program. That knowledge, combined with her experience and on-going educational pursuits, will enable her to help Elks Aidmore build a sustainable financial future. We are looking forward to the many ways in which she will contribute to the on-going success of the Elks Aidmore program.”
