Tell us about your favorite cause.


It hurts my heart that children are going hungry so I’m extremely fond of programs that are feeding children, such as The Idaho Foodbank’s Backpack Program.

What did you think you were going to be when you grew up?


I wanted to travel the world, so a stewardess seemed like the ideal job. As I got older and not much taller (minimum height requirements), that changed to a truck driver traveling the country in a big rig.

What do you like about working at Oliver Russell?


The people working at Oliver Russell are amazing. Along with producing work that makes me proud to be working here, they are the best of friends and make coming to work a pleasure.

Favorite breakfast food?


Pineapple pancakes. It’s my Mom’s recipe with a yummy orange sauce.

Would you rather ride a bike, a horse or a motorcycle?


Motorcycle. And that’s ride not drive. My husband, Paul, used to have one and we used to go on day trips. So fun!

Change can be hard. How do you make it easier?


Take a deep breath and face it head-on.

Who inspires you?


My Grandma, Dot Kirschke. She was remarkable woman. She was full of love, compassion, and kindness. I feel the following quote really states how she lived her life, “Try to find someone that you can make happy. Truly, giving is better than receiving.”

What is one fact about you that people find surprising?


I swam with sharks. It was so scary and thrilling. I would absolutely do it again!
