Teri Gullickson is living proof that anything can be accomplished if you have enough Diet Coke and access to training.
After a Bachelor of Science degree in Education from Valley City State University (Valley City, ND) and five years of teaching 8th-12th graders, Teri felt the need for a change and began work at the American Heart Association in Jamestown, ND, while also acquiring an Associate Degree in Medical Transcription from the North Dakota State College of Science (Wahpeton, ND). While employed with the AHA, Teri wrote press releases, trained other employees, and maintained financial records. She also had the opportunity to organize state-wide legislative events for AHA staff and volunteers.
In 2003, things got a little complicated, or maybe just confusing. We’re not sure anyone really understood exactly what she did on a daily basis, but Teri left AHA to work for both the Jamestown Stutsman Development Corporation and the North Dakota State College of Science College Outreach-North Dakota Workforce Training SE Region. (Tell me that’s easy to put on a business card.) She worked in a shared position as a Training and Project Coordinator. For JSDC, Teri strengthened relationships and encouraged networking among businesses and industry in the region, and it is here where she first got a taste of customized training through College Outreach. Teri then made her position at NDSCS full-time in 2005, leaving JSDC (but not really, her office didn’t change locations) where she became the Associate Director of Workforce Training. (NDSCS is also where she began working with Dale Knutson!)
Two years later, Teri earned the promotion to Director of ND Workforce Training (TrainND Southeast). Through the college, Teri worked to help companies address their training needs, forged partnerships and helped Dale manage and grow the TrainND department to better serve their customers. She would stay in the position until 2010, when she left to join Dale and True North Development.
Throughout her career journey so far, one thing has remained a constant: Teri Gullickson has a passion for positive change, collaboration and education. At True North Development, she brings a wealth of experience in education, network and relationship building, and project management. (Did I forget to mention she also has a PMP credential?)
Teri’s passion and die-hard dedication (translation: lots of Diet Coke), works to help organizations succeed.
