Our company's "Philanthropic Mission" is to help women & children in the 9-county Metro Area.
As a Girl Scout Alum, I work with the Girl Scouts of Mn and Wisconsin River Valleys, in many capacities. Our company also partners with Dress for Success, an organization helping underserved populations learn how to seek and dress for employment.

I am completely passionate about serving and connecting people. I was a "social work & psychology" major at Concordia College (fellow Cobbers, unite!) and that study has served me very well in my career in the staffing industry. I find helping others to be my most rewarding activity and I love it that I can do this in my business! Concordia was a firm foundation for a life of service.

I am (mostly) Norwegian (and a little Swedish) and have a rich Norwegian heritage with many relatives in Norway. We love to visit them. I am a Wife, Mom of Twins + a Daughter, Grandmother of 4, Singer, Lake Lover, and Connector of People.

I am active in my church, and sing in the music program there. This is my first love, and greatest gift to myself, to sing at church!
