Introduce your family:
My husband Chuck and I have a family of all boys. Tanner is 22, he is a pilot and scheduled to complete his commercial flight hours this year so that he can fly the “big jets.” He is also getting married this November to his longtime girlfriend, Summer. Tristen is 17, he just completed his junior year of high school. His dream is to be a cattle farmer after high school. I have informed him that our 3 cows and 9 acres does not make a cattle ranch, but he is determined to grow our hobby into a career. RanDon is 18, he came to us 3 years ago and has been a wonderful addition to our pack of boys. He just finished his high school career and is setting out on his own. He is a hard worker and has been working in various construction fields. We are excited to see where the future takes him. Lastly is our youngest, Teagan. He is 8 years old and just completed 2nd grade. He loves to tell jokes and riddles. He wants to be a Hydrologist when he grows up, which I had to google.

What are you most looking forward to over the next couple of months?
Over the next few months, we are looking forward to going to our camper on the weekends where we can spend time together as a family; fishing, playing games and just being together. Summers are short in North Dakota, so we plan to enjoy all of it.
Why do you do what you do?I do what I do because I love it. I love numbers and organizing them. I have worked in many careers and have learned many things. Mostly I have learned that I am not a Salesperson and I do not like being in the spotlight. What I do enjoy is helping and supporting a company so that the people who are great at sales and being in the spotlight can do what they do best while knowing that the background activities are being well taken care of.
What is the nerdiest thing you do in your spare time?I research everything. My friends and family know that all they have to say is, “I wonder…” and I will be looking it up. Often at night I will suddenly think of something random such as, “What is the most poisonous snake?” and then I am up for 2 hours learning about the difference between poisonous and venomous and different snakes. My husband will then remind me that we don’t have poisonous snakes in North Dakota and that I should probably go to sleep.
Name one thing still left on your bucket list.
I want to go to Ireland one day. I want to see the countryside and explore the small villages there.
What’s one thing most people don’t know about you, but should?
I had many different jobs before settling into Accounting. Probably the most unusual was when I worked for the airport. It was my job to be the person who stood on the tarmac with the orange paddles in each hand guiding the planes where to stop and turn off their engines.
Share a picture of something you love.
My hobby is to take scenic pictures. Most of my camera roll is filled with the beautiful things I see everyday in North Dakota. Picking one photo was very difficult but I decided to share this photo of the sunrise in winter from my front porch.
That's a wrap! We can't wait to share more about all of our team members, but since there is more to us than just counting beans we are going to take this one rockstar at a time! Until next #MeetUsMonday ... Go Make Dreams Come True!
