Amy Felix, Accounting Manager

There are lots of things that we could tell you about Catalyst Accounting Manager Amy Felix. We could tell you that she has a fancy Nikon camera and a passion for photography. We could tell you that she loves Benihana, the color brown, and the vocal stylings of Mariah Carey. We could even tell you that she faithfully watches every episode of the A&E show Hoarders, eagerly awaiting the final reveal when the hoarder's lair has been swept free of old newspapers and dunes of dirty clothes. And while all of these elements are true and unite to make Amy the person we know and love, they pale in comparison to the fact that Amy has a pet pit bull named – are you ready for this – Lulu. No, not Bruiser, Gnasher, or Kujo. Not Dozer, Bruno, or even Roxy. But... Lulu. Yes, while other pitbulls strut around Los Angeles with names befitting cauliflower-eared MMA fighters, Amy's pitbull must answer to calls of "Here, Lulu!" as if she were a prissy little pomeranian or a dainty bichon frise. But alas, much as we'd like to do so, we can't spend Amy's entire profile discussing her breed-defying choice of name. So, to give you a greater sense of the woman at the helm of our finances, we'll tell you a little bit more about Amy's life and her responsibilities at Catalyst. As our team's Accounting Manager, Amy reconciles our bank statements, processes payroll, forecasts cash flow, and does whatever it is accounting-type people do with balance sheets and P&L statements. (All we non-financial people know is that the stuff that goes under "Meals & Entertainment" is WAY more fun than the stuff that goes under "Dues & Subscriptions.") Throw in a little variance analysis and mileage reimbursement, and you've got a pretty accurate picture of Amy's day. When she's not conferring with Catalyst's Controller, Arlene, or listening to ADP's hold music, Amy enjoys spending time with her teenage daughter, her six nieces, and helping children with special needs.

Why She Works for Catalyst

It's like Ernst & Young but a lot less "Ernst-y."

How the Universe Has Punished Her for Being a Freakishly Good Test-Taker

Though she is totally down with broccoli, cabbage, kale, spinach, bok choy, and even brussel sprouts, Amy harbors an "immense fear" of green beans, a phobia she has unsuccessfully tried to overcome with cognitive-behavioral therapy, positive visualization, and heaping amounts of butter and salt.
