Director of Buisness & Finance
During college Ms. Engelke started accounting work with an economics firm handling the accounts payable department and after graduation changed to become a contracts specialist working on contracts with the Department of Commerce, the Department of the Treasury and the Department of State. The job encompassed both managing the contracts and working on cost proposals for renewals as well as new business opportunities. The company relocated offices out of this area and Ms. Engelke decided to make Bryan her home and did not relocate. She then worked as a private accountant for a family handling all aspects of their joint ventures and construction projects. Ms. Engelke later became a Financial Analyst with Treasury Services, a department of the Texas A&M University System, in which she handled the debt management and capital planning for the system. This entailed preparing documents for the issuance of commercial paper and the issuance of bonds as well as the Capital Plan, the Coordinating Board Master Plan and the State Capital Expenditure Plan. All of this was in the era prior to children. After the children started at Allen Academy, Ms. Engelke became the Asst. Business Manager at the school and then assumed the job of the Director of Business and Finance. The Business Office at Allen Academy is responsible for all accounting for the school including payroll, human resources, risk management, as well as procurement and inventory.
Michelle and her husband have three children attending Allen.
