Treasurer, Cherokee Nation
College and a career as a CPA took Horn from her native Vian, but she eventually made her way back to Oklahoma and the small town to open a private accounting practice. She recently put that practice on hold, however, when Chief Bill John Baker appointed her treasurer of the Cherokee Nation. As treasurer, Horn is responsible for all financial aspects of the tribal government. “My days are fast-paced and exciting,” she says. “There is something new all the time. I am passionate about my job and am honored to serve in this role.” She hopes to make a positive difference in the lives of her fellow Cherokees.
