About Us

Connie Harvey

While working as a teller at a local bank Connie Harvey became concerned about frequent problems she saw small businesses having in managing their finances. The problem often was not a lack of expertise or enthusiasm about the work of the business, but ineffectiveness in keeping track of customers, inventory, transactions, bills, bank accounts, etc.

So while getting her degree at McCook Community College (an AA in Business with an Accounting Emphasis), Connie took an entreprenuership class and drew up a business plan for a small business aimed at helping other small businesses succeed. That was the origin of Efficiency Counts.

During the first year or so of her new business venture Connie also earned her status as a “Microsoft Certified Professional”.

Connie grew up in the Los Angeles area (Santa Monica), and has spent most of her adult life in central and western Nebraska. Connie is married to Larry Harvey; together they have 6 children and 12 grand-children.

Lori Khamouna

Lori joined us in December of 2011, moving to Hastings from Curtis, NE. She has over 20 years of bookkeeping experience and is still eager to tackle each new task.

Lori has a son, Zack, who is attending Hastings Middle School and a daughter, Jasmine, who is a senior at Hastings College.

Lori loves working with numbers and has exceptional organization skills – matched by her desire to help small companies sort through and solve their inefficiencies, allowing them to spend their valued time managing their growing businesses. She also enjoys gardening, reading, Bible study and finding new healthy recipes.

Jeff Struck

Jeff joined us in May of 2010. He is the backbone of the Database Department here at Efficiency Counts. We treasure his artistic ability on designing and customizing databases, but we also get to enjoy his musical art “off the court”, so to speak, as he uplifts and entertains people with contemporary songs and beats with his band, “Becoming Mosaic.”
