Fun Fact: Living in North Dakota for 13 years, you learn how to have fun in the winter. Our house is full of board games and card games, and I really enjoy trying out new games that I find with my family and friends, especially in January…
Where Are You From: Richardton, ND
Place Of Employment: First Community Credit Union
Job Title: Communications Manager
How Long You’ve Been In YPN: I joined the Bismarck-Mandan Young Professionals Network right when I moved to Bismarck, three years ago. Prior to that, I was involved in the Young Professionals Network in Jamestown for three years.
Fun Fact: I grew up on a cattle ranch in western ND that has been family-owned for 133 years, this year! As a result, I’ve learned the value of not only hard work, but the importance of dedication. Growing up on a ranch also allowed me the opportunity to develop a strong passion for riding horse, beginning before I could even walk. I competed in small town rodeos, high school rodeo and also participated in 4-H. I still rodeo and own horses to this day! It’s a huge passion of mine.
