Employee Spotlight interview: Dawn McPherson – Accounting Manager
When did you start your Dicon career? March 13, 2007
What do you do – in your own words? Accounting, payroll, human resources, and a LOT of miscellaneous items for the office.
Favorite part of working here? Without a doubt, all the people that I work with, Dicon employees, as well as subcontractors.
Are you originally from Omaha? If not, how did you end up here and why did you stay? I was born and raised in Council Bluffs, Iowa and moved here to Omaha when I got married. I think that in itself explains why I stayed.
Do you have any hobbies? Concerts, I love my concerts!
What’s your favorite local restaurant? I have pretty simple taste. Applebee’s or Olive Garden are top choices for me.
Who’s your team (ie: baseball/football)? If I had to choose a team it would be the Green Bay Packers, but I would much rather go to an NHRA drag race.
How do you like to spend your free time? I love spending time with my grandchildren!
Tell us about your family? Kenny and I have been married for 18 years. Collectively we have 4 children, 8 grandchildren, and our baby Bella – our Pomeranian. We also have an inherited cat, Taz, from my mother.
If you could have ONE superpower – what would it be and why? The ability to time travel – it would be great to go back and see loved ones that are now gone and hopefully erase a few mistakes along the way – and possibly be able to see what the future holds!
Thanks for sharing Dawn!!
