WHERE DID YOU GROW UP?
I grew up in Baraboo, Wisconsin and I have lived here my whole life.
CAN YOU TELL US ABOUT YOUR FAMILY?
I have one older sister, Ashli, one older brother, Josh, and one younger brother, Dakota. I have a niece named Thea and a nephew named Hiro (Hero). I am currently dating Bradley Dailey. We have a daughter together named Torunn. We do not have any pets right now but hope to get a German Shepard dog sometime next year.
WHERE DID YOU GO TO SCHOOL, AND WHAT DID YOU GET YOUR DEGREE IN?
I went to Baraboo schools from K-12. I went to ITT-Tech Madison for an Associates Degree in Drafting and Design.
WHAT DO YOU ENJOY DOING OUTSIDE OF WORK?
Outside of work I love to play with my daughter and teach her new things. I like to go on walks with Torunn and Bradley. I like to watch various shows of home renovations, watch the show The Masked Singer and watch The Bachelor and Bachelorette shows. I also like to play on my new iPad air.
WHAT IS YOUR ROLE AT RAMAKER AN HOW LONG HAVE YOU WORKED HERE?
My role at Ramaker is Telecom CAD technician. I started as a temp for 6 months and have now been officially part of the Ramaker family for almost 2 years.
WHAT DO YOU LIKE MOST ABOUT WORKING AT RAMAKER?
I like how the company is about family and that everyone is always nice. I also like how the company is flexible with you for your hours and your family.
WHAT’S THE BEST WAY TO SPEND A DAY OFF?
The best way to spend a day off would be to sleep in until 9 a.m. drink some coffee in the morning while watching Aerial America or Secrets at the Zoo. Go for a walk. Visit my mom and dad. Then beige watch tv with my boyfriend and daughter for the rest of the afternoon.
WHAT WOULD YOU DO IF YOU WON THE LOTTERY?
If I won the lottery, I would buy some land, and build my dream home, pay off all my student loans and car loan. Then I would build a house for my mom and stepdad, and build a house for my dad and stepmom. I would also build a dog rescue center and rescue dogs from all over. Maybe take a nice long vacation somewhere warm too.
WHAT’S SOMETHING NOT MANY PEOPLE KNOW ABOUT YOU?
A lot of people know that I have a patch of white hair growing on my forehead, but most people don’t know the name of it. It is called Vitiligo. It is parts of the skin that don’t have pigment in them. I also have white spots on my calves as well. It is genetic from my mom’s side of the family. My mom has it, my grandma has it and my great-grandma has it. Not sure if my daughter has it, I think she is too young to tell yet.
