Meet Melissa!

At Dakota West, we’ve built a team of dedicated professionals with real life experience. Our personalized approach means that our Ag Lenders are farmers and ranchers themselves – so they’re highly qualified to understand and meet your specific needs. Please meet Melissa!

Born and raised by hard-working homesteaders in Bottineau, Melissa comes by her North Dakota grit naturally. Before starting her own family, Melissa’s work as a grain cart operator taught her the teamwork and determination that she brings to the DWCU Lending Team every day. Melissa and her partner, Bill Gilbraith, keep very busy between their grain operation and their three small children, but she still makes time for the County Fair Board, the MLS PTO group, and 4H. Melissa has been a valuable member of the Dakota West team for 13 years, and is passionate about connecting fellow farmers and ranchers with solutions to help them grow and succeed.
