Annie

Director

After earning her law degree from the University of South Dakota in 2008, Annie decided her negotiating and lawyering skills were no match for her two year old and became a stay-at-home mom. With another child on the way, Annie loves supporting local businesses, especially the Co-op, and believes strongly in the cooperative principles and values. Annie is serving on the Member Loan Committee.

Susan

Director
Susan Randall

Susan has served on the Board of Directors since 2014. After a 40-year career that included a decade long stint as a sociology professor at Augustana College and a long history in non-profit leadership, Susan and her husband completed the Farm Beginnings program and started an Herb business called Deer Creek Herbs & Teas. Her passion for the Co-op is evident in everything she does and is confident that the new Co-op will provide countless opportunities to small business owners.
