An early start toward an agriculture career proved beneficial for this business pro.

When you’re relied upon to help run one of the busiest offices for a leading company in the agriculture equipment industry, you need a diverse blend of technical and people skills. That describes Ashley Sievers, office assistant at Service Motor Company (SMC) in Dale, Wisconsin.

“Taking dual credit classes at Oshkosh North High School prepared me to effectively interact with all types of people,” says the 2018 graduate of FVTC’s Agribusiness/Science Technology program. “At Fox Valley Tech, I learned how to solve problems and work on detailed projects.”

Sievers often serves as the first point of contact for visitors to SMC, and her agribusiness knowledge optimizes their customer service experience.
