Shawn Heusser, Director of Finance

Shawn joined Nevada Rural Housing Authority in the summer of 2022 as the Director of Finance. He plans, organizes and manages all accounting and fiscal management activities at NRHA.

Shawn’s experience in management and financial operations began 23 years ago when he finished his Master of Public Administration degree from Brigham Young University in Provo, Utah. Shawn is driven by making a positive impact on his local community and is ecstatic to have found a home in NRHA.

Shawn’s extensive background in the public sector has given him comprehensive insight in not only financial management practices, but overseeing programs that serve his community. From his 18 years as the Deputy Legislative Auditor at the Nevada Legislative Counsel Bureau and four years as the Director of Finance and Facilities/Business Services at Lyon County School District, he has implemented and managed programs and his staff through rigorous and comprehensive analysis of laws, regulations, program operations, budgets and other operational data.

Shawn may be a native Utahn, but Nevada is his home. Shawn lives for the great rural outdoors – he met his wife in college mountain biking class! They started their lives together in Nevada, and raised three kids there. You can catch Shawn on his favorite trail in the Sierra, hiking, biking or snowshoeing… and generally trying to catch up to his wife.
