Ivan Alafanso

Ivan Alafanso is a Xavier High School graduate who attended college at Creighton University in Omaha, Nebraska, where he graduated with a BA in Organizational Communications and minor in Business Management and Marketing. Upon his return to the FSM, Ivan spent six years working in Chuuk State, first assisting with the development of economic data for the Department of Commerce & Industry, and then in the Private Sector as a local agent for Ambyth Shipping. In 2006 Ivan began work managing federal grants with the FSM Department of Finance in Pohnpei, at the FSM National Government. For the past year Ivan has worked as a Staff Auditor with the FSM Office of the Public Auditor. In that capacity he works both in the field--analyzing financial data and conducting test samples, and in the office--drafting reports, verifying data and finalizing audits. Ivan brings great amounts of energy to all of the activities he's involved in, and we're pleased to have him as part of the ELDP.
