Kristina Foth

EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR

Hi, I’m Kristina! I was born and raised in Valley County. I may be a bit biased but I believe our Central Nebraska area is the true epitome of The Good Life. I love connecting people to information and resources as they consider making Ord and Valley County their home or as they consider launching or expanding a business. I’m honored to work with many great teams of community leaders that work hard to provide opportunity for future residents, business owners and visitors. 

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.
