Blair Brindley, The 30

Blair Brindley, B.B.A.'13

When Blair Brindley graduated from WMU, she wanted to put her accountancy degree to use by helping others, so she decided to get involved in education and see her work directly impact students. Brindley has since worked with six public school districts, sometimes serving multiple districts simultaneously, in just seven years.

As current director of operations for Three Rivers Community Schools, Brindley has eliminated deficit budgets, resolved human resources issues, established budgets over $30 million and created better benefits packages for employees. She is also part of a team that passed a $60 million bond and secured a grant to bring two electric buses to the district. In addition to accounting, impacting kids and communities is Brindley’s passion, which is why she is pursuing a Master of Arts in educational leadership at WMU.

  • Bucket list:

    My first bucket list item is already complete—teaching college-level accounting. Left on my bucket list is to become a farmer, finish my master’s degree, obtain my certified public accountant license and be a mom.
  • Best advice:

    Kindness is always remembered and is always the right thing to do.
