Christy’s a people person. She’s our spreadsheet guru. She’s a lover of pottery and a self-proclaimed coffee snob and once biked across the whole country. At Apex, she puts her nonstop energy to work serving families and nonprofit clients while also juggling all the “hats” of developing our team and helping clients envision how we can partner with them. She lives in St. Paul, Minnesota, with her husband, Chad, and their 24 thriving indoor plants.

Christy’s favorite ice cream flavor: Anything with coffee and fudge and, on occasion, a refreshing mint-chocolate ice cream cone does the trick!

Christy’s favorite place in the world: Is everywhere an option?

On Christy’s Bucket List: To visit every continent and all 50 states (only 4 remain & then she’ll restart the list!).

At Apex, she loves taking complex concepts and making them approachable, and believes storytelling is an essential part of our work. Mo lives on a tree farm near St. Paul, Minnesota, with her husband, Chris; son, Noah; and spoiled rotten dog, Indy.

Tamara Fanjoy

Tamara Fanjoy

Legacy Planning Consultant

Tamara’s faith is the foundation of everything she does. She’s perfectly at home singing on a stage, hiking to find the perfect waterfall, or cuddling her grandbabies at the family cabin. And when she gets to sit across the table with a family as they consider their legacy, she absolutely shines. Tamara’s demeanor and sense of humor put people at ease, so at Apex, she spends as much time as possible on the road or on the phone serving people. She lives in Eau Claire, Wisconsin, with her husband, Glenn, and near her children and grandchildren. 

Tamara’s favorite flower: If I had to choose just one, it would be a Calla Lilly. I love the beauty of the flower and the foliage that lasts throughout the summer!

Tamara’s favorite musical: I’ve never met a musical I didn’t love!

On Tamara’s bucket list: Hiking the Havasupai trail to Havasu Falls in the Grand Canyon and swimming under them!

Katelyn is the glue that holds Apex together. She’s a world traveler who jumps head-first into new experiences; she’s once went skydiving, bungee-jumping, and cage diving in the span of 24 hours. She can tell you where to find all the best tacos and Happy Hours in town! Katelyn is a maven when it comes to managing projects, bringing out the best in her team members, and improving how people interact with our company. She’s an entrepreneur at heart and brings a crazy level of energy and professionalism to the ever-changing tasks of running a small business, and we’re grateful to her for that! She lives in Chanhassen where you can almost always find her walking her Golden Retriever, Finn.
