HOMETOWN: Round Lake, MN

FAMILY: Husband, Jay, two sons, Isaac, 23, and Jacob, (Jake), 21, one daughter, Abby, 18

COLLEGE/EDUCATION/TRAINING: I am a cosmetologist by training. I got into the cellular business when I decided to take a break from cosmetology. I started as a receptionist and worked my way up. After 13 years at AT&T Wireless I was in the Sales and Marketing department. I spent time managing a call center across three states and the travel was not compatible with having a young family. As luck would have it, KMTelecom was looking for a Sales and Marketing Manager. And the rest is history!

A TYPICAL DAY CONSISTS OF: 7:30 go to work, 12:30 lunch, 5:00, go home. No, (laughing) just kidding. Actually every day is different depending on what I am working on-different projects and tasks-it varies all the time.

YOUR MOST DESPISED CHORE: Cleaning up dog hair.

WHAT MOTIVATES YOU? Getting up early to exercise.

GREATEST ACCOMPLISHMENT: I am the mom of three wonderful children. That is definitely my biggest accomplishment.

WHO DO YOU ADMIRE? My mother-in-law. She was a wonderful person and we lost her way too soon at age 70.
