Customer Relations Supervisor
I graduated from Beaverhead County High School. I have completed adult education classes and training in the telecom industry through work. I began my journey in the telecom industry in November 2004 at Nemont Telephone in Scobey, MT, where I worked until January 2011. I became an SMT employee at the end of January 2011. I have worked in customer service and the cellular department throughout my career, which has offered new adventures every day. I enjoy outdoor activities with my family, such as camping, horseback riding, and four-wheeling.
Customer Relations Specialist
I graduated high school in Hamilton, MT, and went to college at UMW in Dillon MT. I moved to the Big Hole Valley in 2014. I came to work for Southern Montana Telephone in August of 2018. I enjoy fishing, hunting, camping, and reading.
I graduated from Beaverhead County High School in 1995. I attended Alamon Telephone School in January 1996. In the spring of 1996, I went to work for Blackfoot Telephone in Missoula, MT. I worked at Blackfoot for just shy of ten years and then went into business for myself directional drilling for utility companies. I came to work for SMT in the summer of 2007 part-time and, in December 2008, became a full-time employee.
I was born in Washington and moved to Montana as a kid. Graduated from the University of Montana Western in 2012. After college, I went to work as a contractor in North Dakota. It feels lovely to be back home in Montana.
