JoAleen Ainslie, CPCP
Management Analyst III, Manager - Accounts Payable
City of Tacoma, Washington

JoAleen Ainslie has been a member of NAPCP since 2007 and earned her CPCP that same year. She is an original member of the NAPCP Government K-12 Advisory Team and of the Washington State Purchase Card Advisory Board. Her career has spanned 45 years, ranging from being a working partner in credit and collections, a private business college manager of student accounts and then switched over to the public sector. This includes 21 years spent in the K-12 environment, of which ten were dedicated to developing its P-Card program and teaching evening professional development and business services division courses. The last 12, with the City of Tacoma, have been filled with expanding its program as technology advanced. This has paid off as evidenced by her 2017 promotion from management analyst II, Procurement Card program manager to management analyst III, accounts payable manager, with oversight of the recently implemented ePayables program. The Outstanding Contributor of the Year award was presented to her at the 2019 NAPCP Commercial Card and Payment Conference in Miami, Florida.
