Happy New Year, Stephanie! Do you have any big new year resolutions in mind for 2022? 

I envy crafty people.  I crocheted the world’s ugliest dog sweater when I was about 7 or 8 when my Grandma was teaching me to crochet.  I would like to re-learn it.  Probably start with a scarf.  So, I guess my resolution is to get crafty.    

Tell us a favorite memory of the past year? 

My husband and I took a trip down to Florida in April with our cabin friends.  It was a wonderful escape to sunshine and salty water!   

What do you do to wind down and relax when you are not at work?  

I love to cook and binge watch series shows.

What is your favorite part about living here in Cook County?  

Being close to family and friends.  I also LOVE the big lake.  I would never feel at home anywhere NOT close to a water source.  Once you have it in your soul, you have to feed it forever.

We all know you from seeing your smiling face at Grand Marais State Bank.  What is the oddest job you have ever worked at? 

I worked at a resort and occasionally had to pick up goose droppings and unclog guests’ toilets. 

Three random facts about you that most people would not know?

  1. I am terrified of the dark.
  2. I love sound effects.
  3. I hate the Happy Birthday song.
