While currently the Chief Operating Officer of the Children’s Services Council of Broward (CSC), Monti Larsen was originally the second employee hired behind the CEO, serving as Chief Financial Officer. Created by the voters in September 2000 and reauthorized in November 2014, CSC is an independent taxing district that provides leadership, advocacy, and funding for services for, and on behalf of, children and families.
Monti helped lead efforts to establish CSC from the ground-up, building the necessary policies and procedures, as well as various financial and program data systems. Sixteen years later, CSC operates with a $85 million budget, funds about 100 different agencies that provide evidence-based prevention programs for a wide array of services for Broward’s children and their families. CSC employs over 70 employees to manage these 200+ contracts.
Prior to her service at CSC, Monti was Director of Accounting for the Palm Beach County Schools. Before that, Monti held various progressive positions spanning eight years with the Broward County School District.
Ms. Larsen graduated Cum Laude with Bachelor of Science in Accounting from the University of Science and Arts of Oklahoma. She holds a Masters of Business Administration from Nova University and is a Certified Public Accountant passing the exam the first time in 1991.
