Before and during her time at Liberty University, Mrs. Sklar worked for two accounting firms.


She began her journey into the field as an Accounting Clerk with Lanford Brothers Company, LLC, in Roanoke, serving with them from 2006-2010. In this position she collected and paid invoices, maintained equipment maintenance files and government required vehicle titles and tags, and prepared expense reports and used information to create charts to help management resolve issues.


From 2012-2013, she served as a Manager with the Vintage Emporium in Roanoke. In that role she maintained their bookkeeping ledgers and records for tax purposes, ordered and priced quarterly inventory, and processed daily financial reports.


Most recently, from 2014 to present, Mrs. Sklar has served as a Senior Accountant with the firm of Robinson, Farmer, Cox Associates in Blacksburg. In that role, she has been responsible for assisting in the audits of local governments, not-for-profits, and Authorities, Boards, and Commissions. She has prepared financial statements for the previously mentioned entities, verified balance sheets and income statement data by recalculating client ledgers, lead sheets, and listings. She was also responsible for training and managing several new hires during the past five years.


“We are very happy to have Morgan Sklar leading our finance team with Pulaski County Public Schools,” Dr. Kevin Siers, Superintendent of Pulaski County Public Schools said. “She comes to us highly recommended and her extensive experience with auditing local government entities, including Pulaski County and Pulaski County Public Schools, means that she is already somewhat familiar with what is done well here and what areas might need to be improved upon.  I’m confident that Pulaski County Public Schools will not miss a step in the coming years under her financial stewardship.”
