Roxanne Wright discovered her love for working with numbers while working as an Accounts Payable Clerk for Ferguson Enterprises. At that time, Roxie was pursuing an MA in Ancient and Medieval History through the University of Edinburgh and had ultimately planned to be a Librarian. After working and cross training with several finance departments at Ferguson, she decided there were better opportunities in finance versus being a medieval historian in the United States and she changed her plans. She has worked in several areas of finance since then, including her most recent job as an Office Administrative Coordinator where she oversaw all of the financial departments at a Commercial Refrigeration and HVAC company before finding her home at Eastern Shore Chapel. Since leaving Ferguson, she has enrolled and received certification in several programs and is a Certified Payroll Professional, Certified Accounts Payable Associate, a Microsoft Office Specialist, Notary Public, and a Certified Administrative Professional. She is currently working on receiving certification as a Certified Public Bookkeeper and pursuing an AS in Accounting.
Even though she switched career paths, she still has a passion for medieval history and maintains membership in the Plantagenet Society, Tudor Society, Richard III Society, and the Medieval Academy of America. She is also a member of the St. Andrew’s Society, American Payroll Association, National Notary Association, Herb Society of America, and the International Clan MacFarlane Society. In her free time, she enjoys reading, running, painting, knitting, making soaps and bath bombs, trying to keep plants alive, and cooking with her partner Justin, with whom she lives in Norfolk along with their beloved pets Rhys, an impish 9 yr old Chihuahua and Sophie, a mischievous 4 yr old cat.
