Joy Morton

Director of Financial Systems Modernization

Joy believes it is exciting and rewarding to see work reorganized in ways that allows team effort to result in higher value returns, whether the return is better information, better customer service, or the time to focus on that important project that never seems to get done. Working with finance teams to improve systems and processes has been the focus of Joy’s work throughout her career.

Prior to coming to WSU, she served at the University of South Florida and University of South Florida Foundation for 16 years in various financial roles, including participating in systems implementation projects. In 2013, she accepted a position in the Controller’s Office at WSU, with a primary emphasis on process improvement to help to position the University for a successful transition to a modern finance system. She’s seen how important strong finance and human resource systems are in supporting the higher education mission. Joy is happy to be part of the team that will bring Workday to WSU and to work with WSU campus stakeholders to leverage the new functionality to achieve their goals.

Outside the office, her favorite place to be is at home with her family, gardening, playing with her dogs, or painting.
