As we prepare for #Summit2019 we thought it would be fun for all you to get to know our speakers. So we've interviewed each one to share a little about them and what they are looking forward to at this years Women of Influence Summit! Read below to learn a little about Gail Stanger!
Tell us about your education and career path:I have always set goals for myself for continuous learning. Early in my career, I completed courses at several colleges while juggling being a wife and mother of two. Participating in webinars, conferences and leveraging knowledge from my peers and mentors has helped me grow both personally and professionally.
What is the best part of your job?The people of course and organizational effectiveness. Helping my team members set goals and look for ways to organize workflow and structures to ensure we are striving for our best and challenging each other. I enjoy seeing people grow their confidence and building their passions to be successful in the work they love to do.
What’s one thing people would be surprised to know about you?I grew up in the city and found out ten years into our marriage that my husband’s dream was to buy his family farm and becoming a farmer. I like to say I am “The Farmers Wife,” meaning that is his job and I supported his dream but I am not much of a farmer. We love living on the farm and I respect his work and all the work our farmers do to provide food for the world.
What is your favorite family tradition?
We have a few on my husband’s side of the family and my side of the family. My favorite time of the year to celebrate is Christmas. Getting my nieces and nephews, sisters and brothers together to bake cookies and at times we have had 45 people running around in my house. I have found frosting months later in the oddest of places.
Opening the cabin for the summer is filled with lots excitement as well including floaties to jump in the lake with.
Making bouji from the garden leftovers – while I don’t do much of the work to make this happen it is a family tradition we all enjoy.
