Name: Marcy Dix
Title: Grants Finance Officer
Department: Community Planning and Economic Development
It will be five years this summer.
I grew up in a very small town, so I enjoy that Kalamazoo has many more dining and entertainment options (and businesses open past 6:00 p.m.), but is still a close-knit community where I can run into neighbors and friends while I’m out and about.
I have a Bachelor’s in Public Administration from Ferris State University and a Master’s in Public Administration from Western Michigan University with a concentration in Public Management.
Before I moved to Kalamazoo, I worked in the Newaygo County Administration Office for ten years, first as a receptionist, then in HR, and finally in grants management/finance. My experience with the county showed me how much I love working in local government.
For right now, I’m supporting Planning and Community Incentive staff members in their new projects, helping with budget management and project implementation.
Reading – I like a variety of fiction with the occasional true crime or social science nonfiction read
Baking – this year I’m trying to improve my bread skills, but I still love pie, cheesecake, and cookies
Camping – preferably in a tent and preferably by the water
Inspired by my own pets, I’d be a cat. Both of my cats was a stray that found its way to a friendly house and worked its way into a very relaxing life. You can’t always see the effort cats are putting in, but they always seem to achieve their goals.
