Christy Ratcliff

Christy oversees the overall operations and assists in the development of NDP’s valuation and consulting services. She joined NDP in 2014 and became partner in 2019. In addition to consulting clients through the buying and selling process, Christy presents nationwide at regional and national dental meetings and schools. She is also the co-host of the popular podcast, Transition Talk.

Christy received her Bachelor of Business Administration and Master of Science in Accounting from Texas A&M University. She is a Certified Public Accountant and Certified Valuation Analyst. She began her career in the forensic, valuation and consulting arm of UHY, a mid-market accounting firm. Christy spent time in the Internal Audit department for the American Heart Association and as a compliance manager at a multi-billion-dollar hedge fund before joining NDP. 

Christy utilizes her unique background of accounting, consulting, valuation and relationship building to assist NDP clients as they reach their transition goals. She is incredibly passionate about education.

“I think the greatest asset you can have when facing an unknown experience in life is data. Most of us always have a gut feeling about something, but having data to support that feeling (or disprove it) is a powerful tool, especially when dealing with a big emotional decision of transition. My goal is to empower our clients with the information they need to feel confident that they are making the right decision. I love helping people and am so lucky to get to do this for our clients each day!”

Christy and her husband, Chris, have two daughters, Lila and Bryn. She spends her free time chasing her girls and getting together with family and friends. If she happens to get a few quiet moments, a good cup of coffee and a good fiction book are how she is likely spending them.
