Years of Service at Pahl’s Market: 4 years
Job Responsibilities: I am a supervisor and work in the retail market. I have numerous responsibilities including: training & supervising staff, pricing/merchandising, and working daily with our wonderful customers. Whenever I get the chance, I get dirt under my fingernails in the greenhouse.
Love of the Job: I love selling our wonderful assortment of blooming plants to people knowing it is something they truly want but don’t necessarily need. They treat themselves to the good things in life.
- I have two wonderful boys that I’m so proud of, Zach age 17 and Tanner age 14 ½
- A loving husband who is always there for me
- Last but not least, my crazy dog and a cat that makes me feel like Dr. Doolittle because he follows me everywhere! My family will tell you I’m an animal lover because I can’t watch movies where the animals die without crying.
Favorite Time of the Year: The hot days of summer on the lake. Nothing is more peaceful than floating on the water.
Hobbies: When I am not at work surrounded by plants, I am in my own garden beds. I can “work” in my yard all day and it isn’t really working.
The farthest you have traveled from home: I’ve traveled to Hawaii twice, first to Maui and then to Kauai the following year. I remember enjoying some awesome macadamia nut pancakes when there was a rolling blackout across the island. As it hit the diner, an elderly man came out of the bathroom and announced “All I did was flush the toilet.” Everyone laughed.
Three things on your “Bucket List”

What do you miss most about being a kid: Having someone to take care of everything for me and not having any major responsibilities
What skill would you like to learn: I would like to be able to swim like my talented kids. It looks so effortless to me when I watch them compete
First thing you bought with your own money: A television for about $270.00 and I had to finance it!
Who would you choose as your mentor: I would pick my Dad to be my mentor. He passed away 8 years ago. He could fix anything. He could build anything. He was everything!
If you won the lottery, what is the first thing you would do: If I won the lottery, I would go on a long vacation to Hawaii and stay in a beachfront condo.
Which celebrity do you get mistaken for: No one, I am one of a kind.
