K. Christi Greco, Research Strategist at Chickasaw Nation, has been recognized by Marquis Who’s Who Top Executives for dedication, achievements, and leadership in Native American Law.
Ms. Greco attributes her success to the example her mother set for her. Her mother instilled the value of working hard for things that she wants to achieve in life. For anything to have her stamp of approval on it, be sure that it was done to the best of her abilities and that she will be proud of it. She had 20 years in the financial industry before her husband’s parents had gotten ill and they had to move back to Oklahoma. She loved helping people and wanted to know more about Native American law. She thought about arming herself with education to be able to help others. Ms. Greco earned a BBA in oil & gas accounting from Southeastern Oklahoma State University in 1999. She followed that up with earning a Master’s of Legal Studies in indigenous people’s law from the University of Oklahoma in 2019.
Initially, Ms. Greco wanted to bring light to the plight of the indigenous people. By heritage, she is a Choctaw Native American. By perception, the indigenous peoples of America seem to be an underdog and often need assistance in their lives. With her knowledge and experience, she wishes to help the now sovereign nation to continue to grow and improve. Ms. Greco wishes to be the voice of those who feel and seem to be voiceless in the state of Oklahoma. Since 2017, she has been a research strategist for the Chickasaw Nation. She was also a volunteer for the Chickasaw Nation Governor Bill Anoatubby’s Campaign. As a testament to her success, Ms. Greco has received Outstanding Secretary from the Kawanis Club and nine Service Star Awards from JP Morgan. She has been inducted as a secretary and treasurer for the Kawanis Club and as a member of the University of Oklahoma Law Alumni Association.
