The Women of WNCW 88.7 FM: Cathy Walker
Name: Cathy Walker
Job Title and Description: Business Manager
What did your journey to this job look like?
My journey was wild!! I worked full time at Wal-Mart, was a student full-time here at ICC, worked part-time with a Physiatrist, and was a full-time mother while double majoring/receiving honors in both Medical Office Administration and Business Administration Associate Degrees.
What makes working at WNCW special?
Working with a very close knit group of people that not only care about their job, but also mine. I have never worked in a place where everyone works together so well!
What part of your career makes you feel the most inspired?
Being able to help others.
Do you have any advice as a woman for a woman?
My advice as a woman would be … No matter how hard you have it right now, stick with it and it will all be worth it. If you think that you can’t receive an education because of your life situations, just give it a try. If I could overcome my hurdles, you can as well. I would also pass on the advice I received! The best advice I received from another woman would be to keep God first in your life! Look to Him for the strength you need to overcome your life situations.
