I was born and raised in Redwood Falls, MN, about an hour from Willmar. I have been an avid Sonshiner since the age of 12. I was accepted into the Sonshine Security family and put on the Crowd Patrol crew in 2006. In 2007 I met my husband who also works with Sonshine Security. I became a Supervisor in 2008, and am now the Executive Assistant–I assist (aka, keep in line) Jeff throughout the year, managing interviews, applications, schedules, emails and paperwork. During Sonshine I am Jeff’s right hand making sure Security (and almost every other aspect) for the Festival runs smoothly. In the real world, I work as a Receptionist at North Heights in Arden Hills, and also as a Youth Response Center Specialist at The Bridge For Youth in Uptown. I’m also Mommy to my beautiful little Nikki.
