In Kerrie’s fridge is a sourdough starter. Its name is Twinker, and his birthday is October 28th. He is five years old.
That might be all you need to know about Kerrie. This devotion to a single sourdough starter isn’t just a feat in the kitchen – it is a wonderful display of patience and persistence.
Funny enough, there’s a lot of that around the office, where Kerrie is a kind of “jack-of-all-trades.” While officially she manages Blend’s public persona, assists with the sales process, and leads the four-years-and-counting Now What? Conference, she’s also the only one we trust to go to Costco and not come back with Skittles and cinnamon rolls.
She’s the one who’s going to help get things rounded up for a potential new project, which takes the kind of patience that can’t be taught. She’s the one who’s going to carefully maintain Blend’s image, our standing in the community – and beyond – and make sure the world knows about our successes. (Not to mention, our birthday parties and extracurricular activities.)
In this business, no one knows where we’ll be in five years. At least we know from a little sourdough starter that Blend Interactive’s persona is in good hands.
Blend is third organization from South Dakota to be named for the honor by the League of American Bicyclists
