Hello! My name is Eric Keisling, and I am excited to be joining Midtown Catholic as your Director of Finance and Operations. Prior to joining Midtown Catholic, I served as a campaign manager for one of the candidates running for Mayor of Omaha this past Spring. Before joining the campaign, I worked at TD Ameritrade for four years as a Senior Resource Desk Specialist, helping our associates and clients with complex financial questions and problems.
I attended Benedictine College for my Bachelor of Arts in Political Science, and I am currently studying at night to earn my Master of Science in Political Science at the University of Nebraska-Omaha. While at Benedictine, I competed on the Track and Cross-Country teams and continue to love running to this day.
After college, I volunteered for several years at St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Parish’s Overflow Youth Group, the same youth group that I attended throughout high school. It was a wonderful experience to give back to the same youth group that helped me grow to love Jesus and the Sacraments during my formative years.
Outside of work and school, I enjoy traveling and going out to eat with my lovely wife, Kylie, and playing fetch with our rambunctious Australian Shepherd dog, Ruby. Kylie can attest that I am a big history and literature buff. For instance, we most recently visited Hannibal, Missouri, to see the childhood home of Mark Twain.
I am very excited to be joining the team here at Midtown Catholic. St. Joan of Arc and St Thomas More are both wonderful parishes, and it will be a fun challenge to bring them together. As Director of Finance and Operations, I plan to integrate prayer and strong, healthy financial practices to ensure that this transition is as smooth as possible for you, the parishioners. Going forward we hope to make Midtown Catholic a model for other combined parishes to follow.
In the coming weeks and months, I ask that you pray for Fr. Lorig, the staff of Midtown Catholic, and myself as we continue these transitions. If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to reach out to me.
