Welcome to our very first Staff Spotlight! This month we’ll be featuring (drum roll please….) Christy Keizer! Christy is our Director of Business Development for the Grand Rapids area and has done great things in her time at WSI. Although we like to think we know her pretty well, we had fun learning some more fun facts. Let’s get started!
When did you start working at WSI?
Give us an idea of what your role at WSI is all about.
I am the Director of Business Development for the Grand Rapids area – my ultimate goal is to partner with businesses that are struggling to find and keep quality talent. WSI provides a great service that goes above and beyond other agencies, which makes it enjoyable to share our story!
What’s your favorite part about your job?
I love working with businesses that we can make a real impact with. Staffing goes so far beyond just finding people to fill positions. We build great relationships with our associates and clients, so to see the two come together is truly magical.
What are you most proud of personally or professionally?
Personally, which likely impacted me professionally as well, was the moment I found my own confidence and independence! While it took hardship to reach that, I am forever grateful for and proud of the growth that I experienced.
Where did you grow up?
What did you want to be when you grew up?
I was always drawn to marketing in some capacity, which ultimately led me to sales!
What’s your favorite stress-relieving activity to do outside of the office?
Spend time outdoors – walking, hiking, anything to get outside!
What’s your favorite movie?
I’m not a big movie watcher, but I’ll binge all seasons of Game of Thrones repeatedly!
If you could, what time period would you visit in history? Why?
This was a tough question! I found an online quiz and my results were: If you had a time machine, you would go back and visit the Jazz age! You’re all about glitz, glamour, music, champagne, and having a good time. You love fashion and the chance to mingle with society’s best! You fancy yourself both an amateur writer and a connoisseur of good taste!
If you could drink one drink for the rest of your life other than water, what would it be?
Does Hint water count? I hope so because I love it!
