Barbara Shosten CPA
Shoreline Water District, a special purpose district, is pleased to announce the newest member of our management team: Barbara Shosten, CPA. Barb will serve as the District’s new Finance Manager, replacing Mary O’Day who relocated to the east coast to be with her family.

One of the many reasons we chose to hire Barb was her broad range of experience in utility finance management, having served most recently as the Director of Finance at Public Utility District No. 1 of Whatcom County. Some of her other municipal experience includes serving as the Finance Manager at both Highline Water District and the City of Bellevue’s Utilities Department.

Another reason we felt she was a perfect fit was her proven track record of proactive financial management. While at the City of Bellevue, Barb helped establish policies and practices that helped build financial reserves, enabling the City to be prepared in the event of an infrastructure failure—an approach not always taken by City-managed utilities.

Barb also offered first-hand experience with Shoreline Water District financials. While serving as a Project Manager for FCS Group (a financial management consulting firm), Barb led a project team in developing Shoreline Water District’s long term financial strategy in 2005, and performing the financial review for our evaluation of the SPU facilities in the City of Shoreline.

Barb will continue to uphold Shoreline Water District’s philosophy of long-term conservative fiscal planning that has made our district so successful throughout our 80+ year history. We invite you to stop by and say hello!

District offices are located in North City at 1519 NE 177th Street, Shoreline, WA 98155.
