How I Want to Participate in PowerHouse
I would like to get to know other women leaders around the state of Montana. I would also be interested in being a mentor or a mentee. And finally, helping to find ways to encourage females to pursue STEM and even what have traditionally been male dominated roles, such as lineman.
I live in Sioux Falls, SD but spend a lot of time in MT. I am married with one son and three dogs. I have a double major in Statistics and Sociology from the U of MN, as well as an MBA from the U of MN Carlson School of Management. I love to workout, downhill ski, hike and mountain bike. I also am a huge animal lover. I was born and raised mostly in MN but did live in France for my senior year of high school.
I have three sisters – I am the oldest. My parents are retired in live in Hayward WI.
