At Amidon since 1984
Work History: Once babysat the Quadracci kids. Over three decades with Amidons. Roll over photo above to see my first employee ID photo. Labor laws were disregarded. Generally work from a treadmill desk. Type A?
Proudest Accomplishment: Raised 2 feisty and capable adult daughters with my husband Joe. (Yes, we are Mary and Joseph.)
Favorite things to do, not in order of importance:
Make new friends through old-fashioned conversation (Yes, email also works).
Share good stories, especially funny ones.
Help folks solve printing challenges using my years of experience (whether or not I SELL anything).
Live to reflect God’s love in the world.
Pick berries to make jam. Garden. Rid the world of buckthorn. Look at the lake.
Get things done…preferably two at a time. Finish what I start.
At Amidon since 2014
As an art student that makes a living in the print world, I feel fortunate to have worked in nearly every genre of print — from photographic to digital, short run to full web, and sheet fed to large format.
After working for large corporations and smaller family-run businesses, I found a good fit at Amidon Graphics. The people drew me in — super talented, hard-working, committed, and quick with a laugh. I’m calling this my “best last job”. So far, so good!
Being part of a huge clan from Mankato (1 of 68 cousins), I learned early on how to “play nice” while having a blast. It’s a good motto to live by.
At Amidon since 2016
I’ve been in the printing business pretty much all my life — I was setting type and running a job press in my Dad’s print shop when I was 12. I’ve made several attempts to escape the print world but always came back.
I enjoy cooking, working on new cocktail recipes, and hiking in the woods with my dog and grandkids.
At Amidon since 1991
Time flies. I’ve been with Amidon Graphics since 1991. Prior to that, I did
separate tours with the Marine Corps and Peace Corps followed with a variety
of work stints as an engineer, a teacher, and a registered investment
advisor. I am happily married twice (3 kids and widowed + remarried with 3
kids inherited). My spare time is filled with horseback riding, golfing, and
taking my two King Shepherd dogs on volunteer Therapy Dog visits to
hospitals and nursing homes.

In addition to Customer Service and Scheduling, I’ve helped implement Food Safety Standards and Good Manufacturing Practices for our food and restaurant sectors. After more than 25 years, I believe in good, old-fashioned Customer Service, and look forward to working with you.
My husband and I have two grown children. I enjoy gardening, running, and the quest to visit National Parks.
I started with Amidon Graphics in 2005. Before that, I worked as an account manager in the full web catalog market. Along with that, I have additional experience in sheet fed printing, mailing (inkjet formatting, processing and presort for first class, periodical, and standard mail), marketing, list management (merge/purge, etc.) and press/bindery scheduling. Before getting into printing, I was a teacher and coach. With my wife and daughter, I enjoy travel, the Wisconsin outdoors, and sports.
With a B.S. degree in Graphic Communications from Moorhead State University, my 20+ years of experience includes sheet fed to full web working for Forum Communications & Knight’s Printing in Fargo, and The Publishing Group, Gannett Offset, Banta in Minneapolis, MN. I enjoy photography, golfing, boating, and weekends at the cabin with family and friends.
I’ve been in the printing industry since 1987 and with the Amidon team since 1998. When I’m not at work having fun, I enjoy making my wife and two children laugh. We all enjoy hunting and fishing in Minnesota’s great outdoors. I also volunteer my time coaching and training at Believer’s Boxing Gym.
With a background in direct mail and experience with USPS general practices and regulations, I give customers a successful mailing process. When I’m not busy assisting Mary Englund or playing with spreadsheets, I enjoy playing guitar and shooting hoops.
