Before working at Aurora Cooperative, what was the most interesting or unusual job you’ve ever had?
General Manager at Livestock Nutrition in Oklahoma

What do you like about Aurora Cooperative?
When Aurora Cooperative first came into the facility, they updated our entire computer system right away because everything was slow. Now our internet speed is amazing! Shout out to the IT dept.

What’s your proudest moment at work?
Meeting with Todd and Nate and walking them around the facility and them asking me if I wanted to stay on and manage it.

What is something people would be surprised to learn about you?
I like to garden and can pickles and salsa.

What’s your favorite line from a movie?
I don’t really watch a lot of TV. I have 8 kids, so I’m a little busy with them. My oldest is 34 and my youngest is 13. I have 5 grand-babies and a 6th on the way in December.

What do you like to do on your days off?
I love being with my kids. Family is the biggest thing. I’m not ready to have an empty nest.

What’s your favorite holiday?
Christmas because that’s the only time my entire family comes together. North Carolina, Tennessee, Kansas, and Nebraska all come to my house.

You’re happiest when…
I’m around family.
