New Accountant Brings Years of Experience

Washington Report

(May 6, 2014) NGAUS recently welcomed an experienced accountant to the association’s finance and human resources department.

Christina Covington, a Washington, D.C. native, started as a staff accountant April 30. She’ll handle accounts receivable and contracts for NGAUS, the National Guard Educational Foundation and the NGAUS Insurance Trust. Accountant Laurence Temple will now primarily handle accounts payable for all three companies and administration of the NGAUS Insurance Trust.

Covington says after reading about NGAUS and its commitment to men and women in uniform, she was drawn to apply.

“I have family members that are in the service, and just the love and dedication really stood out,” she says.

She comes to NGAUS with 15 years of experience, both in the private sector and for the federal government. She has spent time at the Transportation Department, the Defense Department, the International Trade Center and more.

“I really just enjoy working in accounting,” she says.

Covington lives in the District with her 14-year-old son.  She says she doesn’t have a favorite sports team in the city, she loves the history, sites and functions that Washington, D.C. has to offer. Her son is a straight-A student, headed to Benjamin Banneker Academic High School in the fall.
