Emily Heck

Office Manager

Emily came on board with SBS in 2016. She came to us with several years of administrative support and customer service experience. She graduated from MState in Moorhead, MN with an AAS in Human Resources and Medical Administration. Not only is Emily the first face you see when you walk into our office, but she is the life behind all our social media handles. She has also been given the opportunity to expand her marketing skills alongside her primary role as administrative assistant. Emily is frequently who you see out and about attending social events and networking meetings. The small-town life is where Emily’s heart is. She started her life out on a hobby farm in Audubon, MN. When she turned 17 she joined the Minnesota Army National Guard and was deployed to Iraq from 2006 to 2007. Emily now lives a more low-key life as a retired Iraq war veteran in West Fargo, ND with her husband and cat (whom is often mistaken as her child). Emily has an eye for fashion. She recently started a fashion blog and even styled a friend for the cover of a local magazine. Attending Fashion Week in New York, London, Milan, and Paris are listed at the very top of Emily’s bucket list.
