WHERE I COME FROM I am the proud granddaughter of immigrants who came to this country and settled in the wonderful state of Montana to do what they did best- farm sugar beets. My parents were both raised to be thankful for the great opportunities that the state and the country provided. They instilled a passionate work ethic in my younger brother and myself, which we have passed on to our own children. I am Billings native and graduated from Billings West High School and Rocky Mountain College.

A THRIVING CAREER My career has been spent in the financial services industry, learning the business from the ground up. I worked in banks, insurance agencies, and credit unions, honing my skills through on the job training, securities testing and licensing, and a Bachelor's of Science degree in Applied Management. ​ I was CEO of a Credit Union Services Organization, providing operational, technical, marketing, and collections services to over 25 Montana credit unions. I topped off my career as the CEO of Montana Health Federal Credit Union in Billings, Montana. ​ After retiring in 2012, I continued to work with healthcare credit unions nationwide as the Executive Director of Healthcare Credit Union Association, a national trade association that provides advocacy for the group.

​ Now I serve the citizens of my city, county, and state as a Representative in the Montana House Of Representatives HD52. MY TEAM My family is my rock, my solace, my wise counsel, my true team. I have been married to Jeff Essmann for 21 years. My son, his wife and beautiful daughter; my daughter, her husband and their two handsome sons all live in Billings. ​ My mother lives an active life in assisted living and still provides me with much maternal advice! ​ Sadly, my younger brother passed away in 2021 and I miss him dearly. ​ Much love and thanks to all of you! ​
