Rave is moving from school finance to county finance, having served as the business manager of the Cass Lake-Bena School District for the past year and a half. Prior to this, she worked as the finance offficer for Mesabi East for three years and was the accounting supervisor for the Human Development Center in Duluth for six years. She resides in Walker. “When opportunity knocks, answer the door,” she said of her credo. “One thing leads to another.” Minnesota’s complex property tax system holds a fascination for the University of Minnesota Duluth accounting major. “Now I’m learning about the other side,” Rave said of moving from school to county finance. “I love a challenge.” She replaces Pam Hereen, who resigned April 30, her last day June 30. Rave was chosen for the position from a pool of six finalists.
