Century 21 Affiliated
Hello there!   I currently serve as the Team Leader/Recruiter of the La Crosse Century 21 Affiliated office.  I enjoy teaching and sharing with folks who are considering a real estate career.  In addition, I find it rewarding to meet with existing agents, who maybe feel they haven't found the right brokerage home yet and share with them what Century 21 Affiliated has to offer with our "Value Package."   Personally, I find it is very important to nurture an open communication environment with my agents and facilitate a team concept culture, as we all work together to achieve our business and personal goals.  At Century 21 Affiliated, we all strive to give the best of ourselves to our clients and customers, always putting their interests above our own.  We believe in the greater good, even if it means sacrifice.  Our Century 21 Affiliated Mission Statement is "To provide the most stimulating and productive environment possible so that our Consultants can provide the best professional service to their customers and clients as they help them make the most excellent real estate decisions."

This year marks the 40th Anniversary for the "CENTURY 21" real estate and with this comes a total re-branding and new look!  (Watch for this, the transformation has begun"  Our new C21 Corporate mission statement is: "Defy Mediocrity and Deliver Extraordinary Experiences."  We are all very excited about the fresh changes and renewed commitment to our community!

On a personal note:  I recently married David P. Clements, from the Holmen area.  Between us we have 5 children (4 girls and 1 boy) and a grandson.  We enjoy fishing, camping, dancing, concerts,karaoke and local stockcar driving/racing too.  Dave plays on various soccer teams and I am a committed cheerleader.  Although, I must say, anytime spent together is fun. :)

Marine Credit Union
HR Manager & LASHRM member

I have worked in the HR field since 2014.  Prior to Marine Credit Union I worked at Festival Foods.  My HR knowledge lies in Employee Relations and Performance Management with a passion for employment law. I have been PHR certified since May 2016 and have also been working toward a compensation management certification. 

My interest in fulfilling the Government Affairs role comes from my passion for employee relations and employment law.  I enjoy remaining informed on various legislative updates and would love to continue to share that knowledge with the LASHRM community.  I have been a member of LASHRM since 2014 and have participated in the Day on the Hill as well as attended the majority of monthly meetings.  I have attended both the National and WI State SHRM conferences and have experienced interacting with other Board of Directors at various non-profits.  I am honored to be considered and I am looking forward to the election process and hopefully being elected to the board. 

Hope Burchell
City of Onalaska
HR Director & LASHRM member

I have worked in Human Resources for over 20 years with most of my experience in working for local government agencies.  I earned my Bachelor’s degree in Human Resources from UW La Crosse.  I have over 16 years working with payroll, benefits, insurance, compensation, workers compensation, unemployment compensation, safety, recruitment, and most recently have taken on supervising payroll. I enjoy helping people and seeing the scope of Human Resources grow and change. 

I have served on the Certification Committee for the past four years and remain dedicated to helping other HR professionals obtain certification to show their knowledge of the HR field.  I look forward to doing more!

I'm a marketing generalist who sees the bigger picture.  I enjoy diverse marketing roles, especially in the creative process of advertising and promotion. I am experienced in project management as well as being a key resource to produce the end product. I can wear a variety of 'hats'  whatever's necessary to complete a project.

I have crafted marketing strategies and content that effectively doubled the client base at a recent former employer, where I worked for 18 years.
  I also managed a successful comprehensive rebranding project that achieved consistency throughout the visual assets as well as the sales collateral appearance and tone.  And, I was the event manager for the company's recurring nationwide user group convention.

It’s my desire to be a go-to resource for companies seeking marketing help, whether managing a project or working directly on specific tasks. This can include, but is not limited to: strategy, branding, creative content generation, event/trade show managing, copywriting for sales collateral, and creation of digital/print advertising.

Business & Community Development Director
I am the Business and Community Development Director at Citizens State Bank, a bank that has been one of the fastest growing banks in the state of Wisconsin since 2005, and is consistently one of the top-rated banks in the country. This is the result of the #citizensexperience, which is unlike anything in banking, since a bank shouldn’t just be a place where you go to take out a loan or make a deposit! We believe we need to create value and happiness for each customer, which is why we don’t lose customers and why our customers can’t live without us. Our culture is known to be one of the best in the industry, one which promotes outside the box thinking with fun and play all day resulting in our employees being some of the happiest in the world! Outside the box thinking has also recently resulted with our lobby transitioning to The Café in the La Crosse office, which proudly serves Kickapoo coffee to our Get More™ ( customers in The Café and drive-thru. Does your bank serve coffee in their drive-thru? We encourage you to talk to our customers and explore our reviews, and then compare them to our competitors. You will see there is no comparison to how we take care of our customers and employees! If you are looking for a better banking experience, please call one of our offices. If you want to join our amazing team, contact Human Resources to see if there are any current job opportunities to be part of a company that American Banker has voted “Best Banks to Work For 2018.”
