Brittany White is a mother of three, resident of Sioux Rapids, Ranco employee -- and also an Army veteran.

This past December, Brittany and her family moved to the Iowa Lakes Corridor region to be closer to her husband's family. Upon moving here, Brittany was unsure of where to look for a job that would accept her with her military resume and background.

Fortunately, Brittany contacted the Iowa Lakes Corridor office and became a part of the Home Base Iowa organization. 

"I love it here. I love my job, I love the area. I couldn't ask for anything else."

After serving for 3.5 years in the Army, two of which she was stationed in Iraq, Brittany was exactly the kind of hero that Home Base Iowa is here to support. Within a month of moving to the Iowa Lakes Corridor region, Brittany became an employee for the shipping and receiving department at Ranco.

Home Base Iowa was able to connect Brittany to Ranco and to help her through the process of applying.

From there, as her supervisor said, Brittany "matched perfectly." With her previous work experience in the military, Brittany is able to bring a new perspective to the company.

When asked about her experience with the Corridor region and how she was adjusting to the new area, Brittany replied, "I love it here. I love my job, I love the area. I couldn't ask for anything else."
