Q. When did you start at MACC?
A. December 29, 2015
Q. What’s your favorite part of your job?
A. I love talking to our customers and helping them with their issues.
Q. Can you please tell us about your family?
A. I am blessed with two sons and three lovely granddaughters. My oldest son has a ranch in Henry, Nebraska, which is eight and a half hours from Blair. That is way too far from me! His oldest daughter just graduated from college and his youngest daughter recently graduated from high school. My younger son and his family live in Blair. I am glad that one son is close to me. Their daughter is a sophomore in high school. Our family’s favorite get together is to all go to the Cheyenne Frontier Days every year. We love the rodeo, concerts and shopping (I should add the girls and I enjoy the shopping). We have also done a few camping trips. Thank God my sons have campers and not tents!
Q. What do you do for fun in your free time?
A. I don’t have much free time, but I always seem to have time for any kind of shopping. I also love gardening and I love to put in my DVDs and watch all the old shows like I Love Lucy (my favorite), Andy Griffith, and Leave it to Beaver. They just don’t make shows like that anymore.
Q. If you could travel anywhere to spend a week on vacation, where would it be?
A. This is a hard one, because there are many places I would like to see, but I would love to go back to Niagara Falls and revisit the I Love Lucy Museum, in Jamestown, New York, which is only two hours away.
Q. What’s the best career advice you’ve ever received?
A. Work hard and always tell the truth.
Q. What’s your favorite quote?
A. I’d rather regret the things I’ve done than regret the things I have not done – Lucille Ball
Q. The one person I’ve always wanted to meet?
A. Lucille Ball (if you saw my office you would know why). Can you tell I am an “I Love Lucy Fan?”
Q. If you could add any food to the MACC vending machines, what would it be?
A. Ice Cream Bars
