1️⃣ What does your work as an Assistant Manager entail?
My work includes administration duties and the day-to-day supervision of store activities. My favorite parts of the job are getting to come up with fun new drink recipes and baking desserts! 🍪

I take pride knowing that Ho-Chunk, Inc. is invested in creating opportunities for the Winnebago community.
3️⃣ How has Ho-Chunk, Inc. helped you grow?
Ho-Chunk, Inc. has given me the opportunity to exercise my leadership skills and learn from other professionals on my team.
4️⃣ What do you like to do outside of work?
I am a very busy mom and wife!
I recently started playing co-ed softball again and got a team together for women’s basketball league in the fall. I love to bead and attend pow-wows. I have a houseful of seven boys, so every Sunday is peewee football. 🏈
I was also on the policy council for Educare Winnebago, and I work part-time at the IronHorse Casino Bar and Grill in Emerson.
