Julie

Executive Assistant/Human Resources

As the Executive Assistant, my job is to collaborate on new ideas with our management team, participate in meetings to arrive at tasks and take-aways and then follow-up on those items.  I work very closely with our General Manager to help implement various processes throughout our organization.  With our transition from direct to dealers, I am responsible for sending out dealer agreements and working with dealers to successfully transition over to our Territory Managers and Customer Care Team.  There is a lot of work behind the scenes which requires flexibility and good organizational skills.  I do love to be organized!

In the Human Resources role, I am responsible for recruiting new hires, maintaining benefits and payroll, and engaging in training and development.  We strive to have our team in alignment with our Ten Core Values and it shows in all we do!

Prior to Rio Nutrition, I worked in the telecommunications industry.  Communication is key and it is inspiring to be part of the Rio team where we work together to make the dealer/rancher our top priority.

My husband, Joel and I live in Redwood Falls where we raised our three daughters.  I love to travel and have several destinations on my “bucket list” with Ireland at the top of my list.  Of course any beach will do too!
