Integrity isn’t something one can mimic according to Nancy Risher, Accounting Manager and Controller for K2 Design and Fabrication.
“Integrity has to be part of who you are, it goes back to your convictions about your values and what’s important,” explains Nancy. “It’s more than making sure that the money is handled correctly, it’s when you say you are going to do something, you do it.”
Simply put,“Your word is your word.”
Nancy has more than 25 years of experience in various aspects of accounting. She has worked for K2 Design and Fabrication for five years. Her trust in her faith assures her that she has become a part of the K2 family for a reason.
“God has a purpose for everyone and I definitely feel being at K2 is part of his purpose for me,” she admits.
The journey for Nancy has been full of ups and downs. K2, like others, suffered due to the Great Recession of 2008. She worked diligently to ensure that its vendors understood payment terms and lengths. Five years later despite the tough time, K2 maintained great vendor relationships.
When not working, Nancy leads a bible study at her church and spends times being a surrogate parent to her 11-year-old grand nephew.
Her outlook on her personal life mirrors her professional as she describes the past as a period of “stretching, growth and learning”
