Brad's job as Administrator at Northridge Residence brings them back to the region nearer to family and familiar country. Brad hails from LeMars, IA, while Machelle is from Sioux Falls, SD. Married just over a year ago, they are glad to be back in a small town and Brad is excited about the potential of his new job. Brad's interest in long term health care admin- istration started early in life. He volunteered at the Good Samaritan Society Home where his mother worked, as the business office manager for 17 years. "Unlike some other businesses, I find working in the long term health care field an opportunity to impact peoples lives," says Brad. "It's a challenging field, as well. Machelle tells me I thrive in chaos, and if that's true, the health care industry with all the components of the pri- vate and public sector, consumer care interests, govemment regulations and funding issues pro- vide plenty of challenge." "We loved Boise, but this is an opportunity to work in a community that has been progressive in supplying quality care and health care options." Brad indicated, "It's unusual to see the full continuum of services from independent living to hospital in a small town, but Ortonville is well on its way to completing the continuum. It is rare to see the number of services and level of committ- ment to the community that I see in the Ortonville. From the hospital, to doctors, to sup- port staff, the people involved in health care work together here in Ortonville. Machelle has worked as a dietician but is look- ing at other opportunities for work in the area. "I've been working as a dietician for eight years, and I would like to take some time to look around." "Right now, I'm taking advantage of the free time, to visit friends in Minnesota I haven't seen while we were in Boise. I'm looking at educa- tional options as well as checking out whatever opportunities might be available in the area." Machelle also likes to cook, and recently received a collection of Br,d's family recipes to test. Brad admits he's excited about his job, and spends a lot of his time at work. But when not at work, Machelle and Brad love to travel and spend time outdoors; cross-country skiing, camp- ing, and canoeing. Brad also likes to fish. "I don't care much for fly-fishing which was about the only fishing Bosie offered, so Coming back here and catching Walleye will be a treat," he said. Machelle is an avid traveller. She participated in the Global Volunteers program in Tanzania and has traveled to Malaysia, Thailand and through- out Europe as well. "I've probably traveled enough overseas for awhile, Brad and I intend to see more of this country while we can," said Machelle. Brad and Machelle Schipper are looking forward to living in Ortonville nearer to their families and Midwest friends. ili i i i Series sponsored by Minnwest Bank i i iiiii We have the checking account FOR YOU.
