After graduating with a Business Finance degree, I spent a few years working for an investment company in Miles City before joining our family business in 2017. I have enjoyed this new venture and getting the opportunity to work side by side with both my parents. An added advantage is the ability it allows me to spend time with my growing family.
I have been married to my husband, Brennan, for four wonderful years. We have 2 daughters, Delia and Enola, as well as 2 sons, Patton and Hollis. We live out of town where my husband ranches, both managing our expanding cow operation and helping all the neighbors. We are blessed to be able to raise our children in the beautiful badlands of Montana.
When I am not juggling our work-life balance, I love to sing. I am involved in the Worship Team and choir at Grace Bible church and, when my schedule permits, I enjoy participating in community singing opportunities such as the community choir. However, some of my favorite singing “gigs” are those in which I am able to perform with my grandma, Hazel Stabler, who is the epitome of a classic country music pianist.
I've been involved in the trucking business all my life. I knew from a very young age that it was what I was made for. I started driving with my Dad when I was in my teens and as soon I got my chauffeurs license at 18, I got my first truck driving job working for Dale Fellman Feeds in Miles City, MT where I worked for two years. I went to work for Jerry Singleton Trucking and Ray Jerrel Inc. before I went into business for myself in 1989 and have been self-employed since.
I served as Youth Director at Grace Bible Church under Pastor Jerry Coon in Miles City, MT from 1991 through 1999, and been a board member of GBC for many years. I served two terms on the Miles City Unified School Board, coached youth basketball for several years, and have been a board member of the Motor Carriers of Montana for many years, serving as President in 2013. I think it is important to be involved in advocacy groups that represent interests that one has. The world is run by those who show up!

Growing up in Eastern Montana, agriculture and family business has played an integral part of my upbringing. I grew up working on my family ranch north of Miles City with a passion for farming. After graduating from Dickinson State University in the spring of 2013, I moved back to Miles City and worked in the agriculture industry for many years on the retail side. In 2015, my roots brought me back to farming on the side with my wife, Rachel, south of Miles City which keeps us very busy each summer.
I am very fortunate for the opportunity to work hand in hand with family day in and day out while raising our two daughters, Griffyn and Decklyn, and our son, Gresh. In my spare time, I enjoy watching all sports, especially the San Francisco 49ers.
Ever since I can remember my dad, Ken, always told me that I was going to be his personal assistant. Growing up I thought that would be the worst job! Who would want to spend everyday with their dad? When I graduated college in 2013 with a degree in business administration, I moved back to Miles City to do just that. I joined him in the steel and recycling business as well as the trucking industry until 2014 when I got married to my husband, Derick where I then went a helped at his family business. In 2015 we welcomed our first daughter, Griffyn, our second daughter Decklyn in 2018 and our son Gresh in December of 2019!
We are very blessed to be able to work back in the transportation as it offers huge potential and growth as well as the opportunity to work within our family business.
