Dawn Eichten began work at the St. James Plaindealer last week as a sales associate. Eichten is from Sleepy Eye and grew up in the Springfield area.
She has been working hard for the Plaindealer here in St. James getting to know potential clients, business owners and what is happening in the area.
“Everybody here is really friendly, and I haven't run into anyone who didn't want to speak, even if they weren't going to do business, people are accepting of new ideas,” said Eichten. “Doc here is very helpful in getting things rolling.”
Eichten will be working part time while she continues her education online at Phoenix University. She is in the third year of a marketing program and has an associates degree in business.
“It was kind of my goal to get into media, I wasn't sure what direction I would go as far as media, but sales and marketing has always been something I enjoyed,” said Eichten.
Eichten says she will work hard to make sure her clients understand what they are getting out of working with the Plaindealer and Gatehouse Media.
When she isn’t working or attending school, Eichten enjoys gardening and spending time with her three children and granddaughter.
