Meet the team: Finance

Finance Team

Finance Section Chief Stephanie Elledge, Cost Unit Leader Carolyne Riggs, Procurement Unit Leader John Warner and Time Unit Leader Becky Hopkins are an integral part of the Lone Star State Incident Management Team; they’re the ones who ensure that the bills get paid.

They also track payroll for the team and costs for all assigned equipment. Response and recovery efforts on natural and manmade disasters often can cost millions of dollars, and it’s important that every penny is tracked and accounted for.

The four Texas A&M Forest Service employees on the Finance team represent different office locations – Elledge is from Lufkin, Riggs is from Nacogdoches, Warner is from Conroe and Hopkins is from San Augustine – but they function like a family and have served together on numerous incidents.
