Faces of Magnum:
Celebrating her 15th year at Magnum as a title claims analyst, Mindy was part of the Brown Transfer/BC Freightways acquisition and has really enjoyed her time here at Magnum. When she’s not at work Mindy likes to spend her time unplugged at the lake with her family, reading or baking.
Tell me a bit about yourself, Mindy!
I was born and raised in Kearney, Nebraska, and grew up around the trucking industry. I have been married to my husband, Jim, for 23 years and I have a 19-year-old son who is a sophomore in college and a 17-year-old daughter who is a senior in high school. I also have a 10-year-old Yorkie dog, named Mille. I have one brother and one sister. I enjoy spending time with my family and attending the many activities my kids are involved in. I love spending time at our family’s lake house as it is one of my favorite places to be as you can really unplug and enjoy the beauty of the lake and spending quality time with family and friends. I enjoy reading, cooking, and baking as well. I attended Kearney State College (now known as the University of Nebraska – Kearney) and majored in elementary education before moving to Colorado and attending Barnes Business College and that is where I obtained a degree in business administration.
What is your current job title?
My current job title is claims analyst. I cover all things cargo claims related. My day-to-day job consists of working on all the regional claims that are presented, this includes everything from opening up the claim and researching the shipment to determining what happened and who is liable. It is both challenging and rewarding at the same time.
How long have you worked at Magnum?
I have been with Magnum for 15 years this November, prior to Magnum I was with Brown Transfer/BC Freightways.
What is your favorite part about working at Magnum?
My favorite part of working at Magnum is that everyone is always willing to help each other out. I especially appreciate my team that I work with in the claims department. Just knowing that I have a great support system and that I can go to them for help when I am unsure of something I am working on or to have someone to bounce thoughts off makes for a wonderful work environment!
What advice would you give to someone just starting out at Magnum?
Don’t be afraid to ask questions. You can never ask too many questions, in my opinion.
What’s something that might surprise me to know about you?
At one point I worked with my dad, uncle, aunt, and brother.
