Jeff Buchanan

Jeff first came to NOLS as a student on a Baja Sea Kayaking course in 1991 and returned for a Semester in Mexico in 1993. He has served as NOLS' finance director since 2000, overseeing the global financial operations of the school as well as managing the information service and purchasing departments.

Before starting his career with NOLS, Jeff served for 16 years as the vice president of finance for a nonprofit hospital in Indiana. In that role he was responsible for the management of the financial, information, medical records, purchasing, and dietary departments of the hospital, as well as managing several hospital-owned physician practices.

Jeff earned a bachelor's degree in accounting from Ball State University.
