Jill Arthur is this month’s featured employee. As Senior Client Relations Manager it is my pleasure to be able to work with all the MACC customers in my territory to assure that they have everything they need to keep their billing services running smoothly. I enjoy working on large integration and provisioning projects while thinking “outside the box” for solutions.
Q. When did you start at MACC?
A. June of 2003
Q. Can you please tell us about your family?
A. I have been married for 38 years in December to David Arthur. Our “blended” family consists of my son, Chris, and his wife, Teija, who currently reside in Finland, our daughter, Elizabeth, who works for the University of Nebraska- Lincoln and our son, Billy, and his wife, Stephanie, who have blessed us with three grandchildren: Katelyn, Jake and Tommy.
Q. What do you do for fun in your free time?
A. I enjoy spending time with my family, especially my grandchildren. I also love to work in the garden including canning and preserving for the winter all that I grow. I love art, welding, cooking and reading as well.
Q. If you could travel anywhere to spend a week on vacation, where would it be?
A. If I could take my whole family with me it would have to be to an island in the south Pacific to just lay on the beach and listen to the ocean. If it was just me it would be a trip to Finland to see my son and his wife.
Q. What’s your favorite quote?
A. “I want to stand as close to the edge as I can without going over. Out on the edge you see all the kinds of things you can’t see from the center.” Kurt Vonnegut
Q. The one person I’ve always wanted to meet?
A. My maternal grandmother, Susan Elizabeth Sykes, who passed away before I was born.
Q. If you could add any food to the MACC vending machines, what would it be?
