She devised a variety of schemes to divert money from her employer’s accounts to her own, including:
- Making unauthorized transfers from the company’s disbursement account to her personal account at ESB Financial in Emporia
- Issuing unauthorized checks and depositing them into her personal account
- Issuing unauthorized checks to repay loans she obtained from her 401K account
Using the above methods, she embezzled a total of $265,927 from the company.
