Joy Otis 

Executive Assistant

Joy is the President and Co-Owner of FRP Financial.  Her primary responsibilities include bookkeeping, claim-related problem solving, creative "think tanking", and delivering goodies to clients.  She is also the flow manager at the office, living by the latin words -Quo vadimus- where are we going, and then what are we doing to get there?  In this era of significant government oversight, she finds these questions both frustrating and comical.

In her spare time, Joy is a gym rat, loves bike riding and generally anything outdoors.  Her next big challenge is to learn to enjoy winter.  She is a long term member of Spokane Central Lions Club.  She is also on the District Board in charge of eye glass recycling for this area.
