Nancy  Burns
Nancy Burns
Controller

My name is Nancy Burns, and I am the Controller for Straightline Chrysler. I started working in the car industry in the spring of 2016. The transition to the car industry has had a few challenges, but that is how we grow, constantly learning. Throughout my career, I have worked in many different industries while raising a family and earning my education through night classes. It took determination, perseverance, and of course a great deal of support from my family, but after 12 years of night classes I earned my Bachelor of Business Administration Degree – major in Accounting. When I am not at work I enjoy spending time with my family snowshoeing, kayaking, and other outdoor activities. To support my love of accounting I also do bookkeeping for a couple of not for profit organizations.My name is Nancy Burns, and I am the Controller for Straightline Chrysler.
