EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR

 

Welcome to Ord and Valley County! You’ve come to a place I love to call #GreatestNebraska. My family and I chose Ord and Valley County fifteen years ago to pursue our dreams. Since then, we’ve raised our babies, started a business, and integrated into the fabric of a community that is second to none. You’ll find accessible, serene recreational experiences, quality of time, a slower pace of life, safety, and security that only a progressive small community can offer. I invite you to look around at all this area has to offer, and consider Ord and Valley County a place for you as an individual or family to thrive and reach your dreams.

Katie Walmsley

DEPUTY DIRECTOR

Hi, I’m Katie!  I have the unique experience of being a Valley County resident by choice.  When people ask me why I chose to plant my roots in Ord I like to say phrases like “life just took me here” or “it just feels different.”  The truth is, it’s the combination of amazing people and beautiful places that made this unique location my chosen home.  I’m so thankful to work every day advocating for my community, sharing it’s stories and celebrating its successes.
