What are your responsibilities?
I operate the scale, handle all work orders that come out of the shop, and do billing for STI repairs. I’m also responsible for invoices on parts and over the road breakdowns. I keep fuel inventory and handle anhydrous work orders as well.
How long have you been here?
I started on November 20, 2017!
What is your background?
I was born and raised in Washington, IA! I graduated high school in 2003 and then furthered my education at Indian Hills Community College.
What do you enjoy doing in your spare time?
I love anything outdoors, whether it’s fishing, boating or riding four-wheelers. I especially enjoy spending my free time at our family cabin on Lake Odessa!
What do you consider to be the most rewarding part of your job?
Being able to interact with customers and build friendships. I enjoy making people smile, and if I can make someone laugh a little that’s all the better!

I love anything that goes fast! I’m kind of an adrenaline junkie.

What has been the biggest change in the industry during your tenure here?
Just in the short time I’ve been involved in the ag industry, I have noticed how technology is constantly growing and playing a major role.
What is your favorite thing about the ag industry?
Probably meeting new people! The farming community is a group that many could learn from, and they represent values some people outside the community have lost over the years. This includes hard work, helping a neighbor at the drop of a hat, and taking pride in your work!

Radiate Enthusiasm; I try to stay positive even when things get kind of crazy during the busy seasons. I do my best at keeping everyone in good spirits when we’re all working long hours to get the job done.
