I’m Elissa Johnson, the Director of Operations and a Partner here at Legacy Financial Group.
I started at Legacy in 2014 in a hybrid operations manager and client service position, and as the firm has grown, my role here has as well. Everything that goes into running the business of Legacy, I get to have a hand in, whether it be strategic planning, HR, compliance, finance, marketing, or any/all other needs of the day. I love creating the foundation for our team to serve our clients and each other well. And although I’m not in a direct client service role on a day-to-day basis any longer, I still get to be the first face you see when you come in our doors!
When I started at Legacy, I had an infant, Vivienne, who is now approaching shoulder height. She takes after my 6’4 husband, Paul. Our second-born, Florence, seems more on track to match my 5’3 stature. Outside of the office, our days are filled with Girl Scouts, gymnastics, loving on our elderly dog Stella, and traveling as much as we can.
I grew up in Broken Arrow and am incredibly grateful to live across the street from my childhood home, where my parents still reside. I attended Oral Roberts University for my undergrad in Business Administration and my Master’s in Business Administration, with a concentration in non-profit management. I also hold a Professional in Human Resources® (PHR®). I was the only ORU grad at Legacy when I started, and I’m thrilled we’ve added more to the team!
I am thankful to work with our fantastic team every day, as we strive to serve our incredible clients well and make a positive impact on our community.
