Rockton Spotlight: Sheila

Hello everyone!  My name is Sheila and I’ve been happily working at Rockton Software for 6 years.  I absolutely love working here and plan to be here until I retire.  I can’t imagine working anywhere else!

First Job

My first job was at Burger King putting the frozen patties on the broiler.  It took me years to be able to eat there again without smelling that broiler.  Now I get to enjoy the smell of smoked steaks from my husband’s charcoal grill.  Thank God!

Years in the Channel

Oh wow…really aging myself here!  I have been in the Channel for 23 years now.  It just seems like yesterday when I moved to Fargo and started working at Great Plains which then became Microsoft.  I remember taking my kids to the Microsoft campus where they could get snacks and pop for free and could sit by the fireplace, my kids thought that was the coolest place to work.

Now I take fun trips with my coworkers and sometimes my family gets to come along, and my kids now know that this is the coolest place to work!

Something you love about working remotely?

The ability to work from anywhere!  Sometimes I’m in Fargo, sometimes I’m in Colorado.  Nothing like rolling out of bed, getting some coffee, and sitting in front of my computer to work.  Especially during those cold winter days here in Fargo where it can be 20 BELOW zero.  I’m not sure why my friends don’t visit in February.  😊

Favorite Game

5 crowns or Aggravation.  My family enjoys playing games whenever we get together and it’s fun to laugh and make memories.

2 Truths 1 Lie

  • When I was a teenager, I spent my summers driving a wheat truck.
  • I have two different colored eyes.
  • I was arrested for trespassing on church property.

Favorite pastime?

Spending time with friends and family.  We grill with our neighbors, camp, go 4-wheeling, ice fish.  We love to be outside and spend time with our fur babies and our grandkids.  (Chloe, Riley and Rosie)
