Tempel is the glue that holds Idea Hall together, managing Accounting and Benefits Administration for the agency. Her career began in Sacramento, where she met some powerful political players as part of her work for Pacific Legal Foundation, the mayor of the City of Folsom and California Professional Fire Fighters Union. She even participated in Kathleen Brown’s campaign for governor. She spent 15 years running her own accounting practice while raising her two sons, which led her to Idea Hall. She has been with us since the start in 2003 and wouldn’t dream of working anywhere else.
