Tikesha Cephas

Finance and Operations Specialist

Tikesha (Ty) is a critical part of our Operations Team, managing day-to-day bookkeeping and handling accounts payable and accounts receivable at AnLar. Ty also assists in AnLar’s onboarding process for new AnLarians and with employee benefits. On any given day, Ty can be found recording and maintaining transactions such as expenses, invoices, payments, and reconciliations.

Ty brings a plethora of operations experience. Prior to coming to AnLar, Ty worked at Active Networks as an Accounts Payable & Accounts Receivables Bookkeeper where she assisted the Controller with organization and structure within the financial department. Ty has also worked in medical billing where she was responsible for accounts receivable.

Tikesha is a not-so-undercover hippie who enjoys collecting crystals (she has quite the collection on her desk!) and reading metaphysics books. She has three amazing children, a fur baby (Jinx), and a turtle (Franklin). Ty prides herself on her ability to laugh through the ups and downs of life.
