Q. When did you start at MACC?
A. 1997

Q. What’s your favorite part of your job?
A. I enjoy helping, working with others, and sharing knowledge. I also love when I can solve a “mystery.”

Q. Can you please tell us about your family?
A. I’ve been married to my hunky hubby Ron, who also works here at MACC, for 20 years. He actually proposed to me over the intercom at work. 😊 We have two children. Our son, Nick, is 33, married, and lives in Mississippi. They are expecting their first baby, a boy, this month. Tori just turned 30, is married, and lives here in Nebraska. They have three children, two boys, and in the middle is a girl, 7, 3, and 1 ½. And we can’t forget our fur children who keep us on our toes: our boxer, Hope, and a feisty Siamese cat, Kona.

Q. What do you do for fun in your free time?
A. Ron and I run, A LOT! We have traveled to at least 14 states, including Hawaii, to run anywhere from a 5k (3.1 miles) to ultramarathons (any race greater than marathon distance of 26.2 miles). We’ve run close to 100 races of marathon distance and above. We like to bike also.

We also love to spend time with the grandkids and go visit family/friends who live out of town. Our favorite vacation destinations are Hawaii, Colorado, South Dakota, and Wyoming.

Q. If you could travel anywhere to spend a week on vacation, where would it be?
A. My dream trips are to go to Greece and Egypt.

Q. What’s the best career advice you’ve ever received?
A. KISS – Keep It Simple Stupid

Q. What’s your favorite quote?
A. Matthew 6:34 (NLT) – So don’t worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will bring its own worries. Today’s trouble is enough for today.

Q. The one person I’ve always wanted to meet?
A. My grandpa on my mother’s side. He died when I was four or five years old.

Q. If you could add any food to the MACC vending machines, what would it be?
A. Diet Crème Soda
