I was raised in a small town in southern Minnesota, where you will find the best two meat markets in the state. I am a first-generation college graduate who went back to complete my degree when my daughter started college. In my leisure time, I like to spend it with family and friends, camping, at the lake, going kayaking, or sitting by a nice campfire.
The best piece of advice I’ve ever been given is, “Be patient and persistent. Life is not so much what you accomplish as what you overcome.”
Advice I would give a candidate who wants to join our team of superstars is you must have high energy, integrity and a positive attitude and you will fit in great with our team.
The most inspiring part of my job is helping my colleagues meet their goals by being a resource to them, supporting them when they need some direction and helping out wherever needed. Knowing I can be that person for them, ultimately helps another student and in the end that is why we are here. To help students attain their goals and dreams for a better tomorrow.
If I won the lottery tomorrow I would travel the world. And, you know, keep working here.
