Christy Owen, Client Service Associate
As we continue with our Employee Spotlight series, I would like to introduce Christy Owen, one of our Client Service Associates. Christy, who holds a degree in humanities from Indiana University-Purdue University of Indianapolis, has worked in the financial world for over 15 years. She has worked as an account administrator, managed transactional data, created client reports, and conducted research, in addition to handling other client-related duties.
Christy's firm grasp of financial and client issues, paired with her light touch, make her an invaluable member of our team and a huge asset to our clients. They know that when they call Christy, she is reliable and will do the job correctly and on time. Christy, like her counterpart, Angie French,
is studying to earn her certification as a Registered Paraplanner --
another step in her career growth as she aims to serve clients in more ways.
Christy thoroughly enjoys the fact that she gets to use her knowledge to make clients' lives easier. She feels it is tremendously satisfying to take something complex to a client and make it "just happen" for them.
Outside of work, Christy is an avid runner (having completed 10 marathons and over 50 half-marathons), enjoys raising her three children and drinking the occasional glass of wine.
