Katie Merickel

Branch Manager

Katie has been leading our Bend branch since 2011 with sales, strategic planning, client retention and operations. She truly understands partnerships, communication, and what it takes to be successful. As an expert in business communications, Katie is able to engage people and make lasting relationships utilizing her strength of active listening and understanding different operating realities. Katie is a seasoned professional and strategist and takes pride in truly being present in all her interactions.

Starting in 2001, she supported 10 branches in the back office of a staffing company, handling claims, payroll, collections and special projects for the President of Scientific. After relocating to Central Oregon from California in 2004, she went into real estate and had a very successful sales career but needed balance. Selectemp was her true calling, and as the selling branch manager she has found her niche with operations and sales, networking, and growing market share.

Katie is involved with Central Oregon OSHA and serves on the committee; she was just named Co-Chair for the COSHA Construction Summit. She is very active in the community and volunteers with the school district, for local non-profits, and can be found coaching middle school girls basketball during winter seasons for BPRD at High Desert Middle School. Katie is very passionate about helping others with both personal and professional growth in the community and with family.

Her quality time is spent with her boyfriend and three children, she enjoys the outdoors and all of the seasons in Central Oregon. She can be found playing in nature’s backyard… camping, fishing, hiking and always being active.
