Marcy Stringfellow

Director of Client Services


Marcy has been with Worktank since 2004 and, as she likes to joke, her main job responsibilities are cat wrangling and firefighting. While she is the one we call when there’s a “fire” that needs putting out, as the Director of Client Services, she actually spends a majority of her time talking to our customers about new opportunities and things they want to do, as well as defining and onboarding projects, and participating in company strategy and leadership conversations.

One of things that Marcy loves about working here is the Worktank family, and the way everyone takes care of each other. Well, that, and the fact that she can work from home. She certainly doesn’t miss the Seattle commute, and admits that, without the distraction of office chitchat, she’s super productive at home. Between client calls, laundry and getting dinner on the table, she’s taken multi-tasking to a new level. Just don’t ask her to do spreadsheets.

What is one thing you wish clients knew about Worktank?
How much we truly care about the success of their projects. We are invested from day one in their success.

How do you like to spend your time outside of the office?By petting all the dogs! ALL the dogs!! I have two dogs of my own, Zoe and Raider, and two cats, Kittywampus and Junior. Although, the second cat was an accident.

I start my day with trail running, and I’m trying to learn how to paddle board. Let me just say that our Anacortes water is NOT WARM. I enjoy knitting, too. In the summer I take a hiatus, but I still attend my knitting group, which is not your grandmother’s knitting group. It’s pretty … colorful, shall we say? Conversation flows!

What is your favorite book of all time?
Any Wallace Stegner book. I cannot get enough of him. I got sucked into Big Rock Candy Mountain with the story of dysfunction and how it contributed to each character, and then I wanted to keep devouring his work. The books are all so different! The way he communicates – his descriptions and characters – it really resonates with me.

What is one of your favorite quotes?
The Scottish proverb, “Be happy while you’re living, for you’re a long time dead.” My husband’s family is from Scotland and this was on his refrigerator when we met 30 years ago.

If you were an animal, what would you be and why?
A hummingbird. They're magical creatures and stunningly beautiful.
