Employee Spotlight: Chris Clark

Chris is currently the Staff Accountant for Riverside Technology. She handles client billings, accounts receivable, helps our CFO with month-end closing and serves as the backup for the payroll and accounts payable person. In October, Chris will have been with Riverside for 10 years! She was born and raised in Westbury, Long Island, NY. At the age of 35 she took her 2 teenage boys and moved to Fort Collins where a month later she met her husband Jerry. Chris feels this was a blessing by God, as she was focused on starting a new life here in Colorado, not looking for romance. Jerry and Chris have been married for 18 years and moved from Fort Collins to a small community called Purcell right off the Pawnee Grasslands.
