This month we’re highlighting our new Office Manager, Christy Walker. Christy serves on the management team at Orcutt and helps us improve the efficiency of our firm’s operations.
She also helps to ensure that clients receive the best customer service possible, focusing on the company values of quality, proactivity, and relationships. “The goal is for my role to oversee firm administration including client and project management and billing and receivables. I will also oversee firm production in terms of new client onboarding, bookkeeping and payroll support, and tax and year end production,” adds Christy, who explains that the role will also continue to grow and evolve into other areas as well in the future.
Keep reading to see what Christy enjoys most about her role so far—and how she spends her time outside of work.
What do you enjoy about your role? I really enjoy learning a new industry and trying to learn all I can to be the great resource in my role. My absolute favorite part of the position, however, is the people I get to work with on a day-to-day basis from the team to our clients. I was looking for an organization that had a clear vision, mission and values and I have truly found that here at Orcutt.
What is something clients might be surprised to learn about you? Something that often surprises individuals is that I am a Veteran of the United States Army.
How do you spend time outside of work? Outside of work, I enjoy spending time with my family and my three dogs who are all rescues—Max, Teddy and Lily—and I am definitely your stereotypical crazy pet parent. I enjoy exploring Cincinnati since it is still fairly new to me since I moved here from Chicago in June of 2016. I love to travel, anything involving music, and working out.
70s, 80s, 90s: Which decade do you love the most and why? Definitely the 80s–talk about a no brainer! From the music, bright colors, out-there fashion and the movies…I’m a true child of the 80s and I’m pretty sure I’d be ok going back to that time period!
