Where did you grow up?
North of Chippewa Falls, WI, on a dairy farm in the Town of Anson.
Where did you attend high school/college?
I attended Chippewa Falls Senior High School and graduated with a class of 341. My grade school was a one-room schoolhouse for grades 1-8, with total enrollment of 25-35—no indoor plumbing or water. Going from a class of two to 341 was a real shock!
I have A.A.S. degrees in Computer Operations and Accounting from District One Technical Institute (now CVTC) in Eau Claire, WI.

The family-like atmosphere and the constant learning and breadth of knowledge available to both employees and students.

Pizza, theater popcorn (I do consider that a meal!), and liver and onions.
What is your favorite movie?
No favorites, but movies need to be seen in a movie theater!
