Interview with Manager, Meranda Wacek

Q: Tell us about your family.

A: I grew up in Bird Island, MN, and currently reside in Hutchinson with my spouse, Monte, and two children, Charlie and Briella. We absolutely love living in a rural community, and enjoy spending time together outdoors. Our kids’ love for hockey keeps us busy during the winter months, and in the summer months we love mornings on the Luce Line bike trail, afternoons fishing or golfing or kayaking, and evenings around our backyard fire pit. Our other passion is traveling together – we hope to visit every state with our kids before they are out of high school!

Q: Tell us something that most people don’t know about you.

A: During college, I studied abroad in Cork, Ireland, then backpacked Europe for 5 weeks. I enjoyed that experience so much, I spent a year living and working in Tokyo, Japan before I finally decided to put my accounting degree to the test.

Q: What do you like to do in your spare time?

A: In my spare time, I love to do almost anything outdoors. I also love scrapbooking and reading books!

Q: Why CDS?

I have consistently heard great things about CDS’s quality of work throughout our communities. The expectation of excellence, along with its culture of kindness and flexibility, made CDS standout during my career exploration. The values of CDS align closely with my own personal values and I look forward to starting my career here!
