Not every teacher is headed back to school this month. Jenn Parker, a Member Services Representative in our New Town branch, embraces teaching as one of her favorite parts of her job. She just celebrated six years with Dakota West Credit Union, and she shares her gift of experience with others. “I am in a position where I get to teach and I love that.”
Jenn first moved to North Dakota from Montana but grew up in Colorado, where she still visits to enjoy the local music scene. “My favorite band is Big Head Todd the Monsters, and every other year my friends reunite at one of their concerts.” She finds it a great way to stay in touch with friends and family who are spread out across the northern tier from Michigan to Montana to Washington, and it gives her an excuse to return to her favorite Red Rocks venue.
As for Dakota West, “I just love it here.” Between the diversity and the ability to always meet new people, she enjoys the interaction she experiences every day. She keeps busy when she’s not greeting our members, especially with her daughter getting married over Labor Day weekend.
Next time you stop into our New Town branch, you might see Jenn answering questions for both our members and our staff – tasks she relishes and we appreciate. For right now, she is just enjoying the summer, even if she teaches year-round.
