I have lived in ND for most of my life. I moved away for three years, living in Florida, West Virginia and Texas, but really missed North Dakota. I recently moved back to my beloved home state. I have held positions with State and County Government, along with others, but nothing was ever quite the “right fit”. There were a couple that I thought might be okay until retirement, only to figure out they were not. My plan was to find a job that would feel “okay” to go to everyday until retirement. You know what they say, “If you want to make God laugh, tell him your plans”. Everything really is in his timing.
After my last job, I wanted to find something different; a career I was excited and passionate about and not just another “job”. When I read the ad for my position, I was so excited I went directly to their website and read every word. I knew Arndt Agency was different and what I had been searching for a very long time. The first core value listed on their website is family, then integrity. Really??? Count me in!! A company that truly puts family first is such a rarity. I’m all about integrity, and have resigned from a couple of jobs due to a lack of integrity, so I was thrilled to read that. I could barely even apply for the job as I was so excited, it was hard to sit still. I knew it was me they were looking for and, without a doubt, knew they were the company I have been looking for and have been in training for all my working life! My broadened employment experiences allow me to deal with everything that comes my way and empowers me to fully support and benefit this awesome, exciting team I am working with.
Speaking with Meghan, Executive Hiring Manager, and Amanda, Owner, made me even more excited. I then, without a doubt, knew this was different. There will be something new and exciting every day for many years to come. Amanda told me there is no glass ceiling. I can see that in her outlook and with the way she talks about everything and I know it is so true of this company. I am so excited for my future with Arndt Agency and in the way I will be able to help people with their needs and futures!
God is first in my life! I feel everything will fall into place the way it should as long as I live the way he wants me to. I really enjoy spending time with family and friends while making memories. Times I get with my grandchildren are very precious to me. Some of my biggest passions are cooking, grilling, singing, motorcycle riding, gardening and camping. My spoiled English Bulldogs, retired from showing, allow me to live with them. I look forward to more wonderful times doing everything I enjoy while also spending time in a career that is so surprisingly delightful. It is such a blessing to find such a beautiful balance and be able to live that way!
