Curacao Vacation

Michelle Jackson: Sales Associate

Last week, my family and I were able to take a break away from everyday life and go on an amazing vacation to Curacao Island together!  We stayed at Sunscape Curacao Resort, Spa & Casino. Sunscape is located along the largest resort beach on the island and directly in front of the National Underwater park, a top ranked dive site. This resort was simply amazing and very kid-friendly. Baby James even had an great time and the staff just loved him!  The food was really good, I think my husband probably ate red snapper every day. I enjoyed eating at the Japanese Hibachi restaurant.

During our stay, we spent a great deal of time at the beach. James and I had the opportunity to take turns doing some snorkeling, water aerobics, and much more. We took the local bus over to Willemstad City for some shopping and ate at one of the local restaurants. Downtown Willemstad was gorgeous. We walked on the floating bridge, which was pretty cool. We also visited the Shete Boka National Park, which was breathtaking. We drove and walked to each location. There was a total of four parks. The Boka Wandomi, Boka Tabla, Boka Kalki and Noka Pistol. My husband had the opportunity to walk down into a cave and see some sea turtles as well.

This was by far one of our best family vacations we’ve ever taken. We met so many great people, shared laughs, bonded over family values and developed friendships that will last a lifetime.

We can’t wait until our next adventure!

Thanksgiving

Michelle Jackson: Sales Associate

Thanksgiving is time when my family enjoys gathering together.  We laugh, talk, play games, and remember those that matter most to us.

Throughout the years, we've given back to our community by packing Thanksgiving dinners and passing them out with our church and with the Mozel Sanders Foundation in Indianapolis, IN. Since my move to Minnesota, my husband, family, and friends have volunteered our time at Feed My Starving Children.

Our typical Thanksgiving dinner consists of turkey, ham, three-cheese macaroni, fresh green beans, sweet potato pie, pumpkin pie, apple pie, cranberry sauce, stuffing, potato salad, deviled eggs and much more.

Some years on Thanksgiving, we even allow the children in the family to open their Christmas presents early. It’s not often you get all of your family together in the same room, so we make the most of our time together and enjoy each other's company. 

I would like to personally wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving!

Welcome, Noah!

Mitch Brunette: Director of Operations

I am very excited to welcome our newest FSM to the team, Noah Her! We have enjoyed getting to know Noah from the beginning of our interview process. He has rapidly demonstrated that he’d be a great fit for our team and a great FSM for our customers to interact with.

Noah has spent his first week in a mix of meetings with me at the office, going through the fundamentals of our business, industry and processes.  We spent a lot of time digging into why we do things the way that we do and Noah has been very diligent in understanding and asking great questions to be sure he’s in the best position possible when he gets out on his own in a few weeks.

The last two weeks he has spent time with Maghan Aschoff, watching her run her route and take care of business.  Now he’s been out for the week with Alex, picking up his tips, tricks, and ways of handling things.

I’m looking forward to getting to know Noah and his growing family as he gets going in the coming weeks.  We’re happy to have him here.

Welcome aboard Noah, thanks for joining our team!
