Happy one year anniversary to our very own Website Specialist & Graphic Designer, Noelle! We can't thank her enough for injecting a whirlwind of enthusiasm and creativity into our office over the past year. Before working at ASI, what was the most unusal or interesting job you've ever had?    I had a summer job at a vineyard taking care of the vines, picking grapes, and working the grounds.  I learned so much and found it so enjoyable getting to work outside every day. When you have 30 minutes of free-time, how do you pass the time?      I have recently started gardening!  My fiance and I bought our first home last year, so I am going to take this summer to work in our yard and learn more…

This is usually the part of the article where we gush about our featured employees.  However, those are generally written by me, and as self-aggrandizing as marketers can be (poppycock of course), I just can't bring myself to do it!  So here are some random facts about me that you just may not have known... ENJOY! 1. What did you want to be when you were a kid?  An elephant!  I SO wanted to be an elephant.  Then a friend told me that I couldn't be an elephant, only an elephant trainer, and I was devastated.2. Where'd you grow up?  School?  I was born in Montana and grew up in North Dakota.  I still consider Montana my 'home state'. even though I lived there for less than four years.  We still…

Warm Welcome to Noelle

Warm Welcome to Noelle

Spotlights
Hello!  My name is Noelle Timler and I am a Graphic and Web Designer from Sheboygan, WI.  I recently graduated from the Graphic and Web Design program at Lakeshore Technical College and had the honor of working for small business owners around the Sheboygan County area.  I was able to create websites, logos, and print materials for these clients that helped them gain more confidence as business owners and in return gave me valuable experience in the world of graphic design. During high school, I struggled to find passions that could be turned into a career.  I ended up graduating from Sheboygan South and going to a UW extension while I was undecided.  I struggled for over a year trying to figure out a career goal that would bring me…
