What brought you to Sioux Falls?

The work opportunities available to my husband and myself after college are what brought us to Sioux Falls. We also knew that we wanted to stay close to our families as we began to start a family of our own. Sioux Falls allowed us the chance to find great careers while remaining nearby to family.

What keeps you in Sioux Falls?

We have stayed in the Sioux Falls area due to fact that it is a great place to raise a family and the relationships that we have built in our community.

What’s your favorite thing about your job?

My favorite thing about my job is the opportunity to work with such talented people each and every day both within my organization and with those that I have the opportunity to serve.

How did you get connected to your industry?

In my career, I have had the ability to work alongside many different businesses. One of the things I love about working with nonprofits is the passion of those dedicated to serve their missions. It has been very enlightening to see how the various organizations impact the community overall and how intertwined they are with each other. The impact they make on a daily basis is inspiring.

Describe Eide Bailly in three words.

People, innovation and life-learning.

What’s your favorite way to give back to your community?

My favorite way to give back is through volunteering with youth programs, which currently includes helping out with the youth programs within my church.

What’s one business you’d like to see in Sioux Falls that isn’t here now?

There isn’t one specific thing. I believe that there are a lot of great local small businesses, and I think it is important to continue to support them. I feel they are a great example to teach our children about entrepreneurship and how hard work can lead to success. I enjoy discovering new places and new experiences.

Where do you see yourself in five years?

Continuing to grow with Eide Bailly!
