The September Employee Highlight is STEPHANIE McCUTCHEON, office manager and scale operator at the Sedan Terminal.
Before working at Aurora Cooperative, what was the most interesting or unusual job you’ve ever had?
Before working at the cooperative, my most interesting job would have been that I was a painter for 3 years.
What do you like about Aurora Cooperative?
I like the interactions I get with the farmers and truckers. Seeing all their faces makes my day. It is fun to get to build a bond with them.
What is something people would be surprised to learn about you?
I barrel race in my free time. I also raise rottweilers and raccoons. I enjoy rescuing all kinds of animals. If I could have pursued a different career, I would have wanted to be a vet.
Do you have an office nickname?
Pebbles because of my short size, and the farmers can only see the bun on the top of my head from the scale.
What’s your favorite line from a movie?
What do you like to do on your days off?
I enjoy spending time with my two kids and all the animals we have. Being outside is our favorite.
What’s your favorite holiday?
Easter would be my favorite holiday because it is spring, and it’s the start of a new season. Things are starting to get warm and it’s beautiful outside.
You’re happiest when…
I am outside enjoying time with my family and our animals. That brings me the most joy.
