Barry Woods, Sales Representative, Kalispell, Montana – I brought my family (wife Jane, son Jamie, and daughter Julie) to Billings, Montana in June of 1982 to begin my sales position with Zee Medical Service Company. I covered southeastern Montana from Billings to Miles City, Broadus, Lodge Grass, Crow Agency, Lame Deer, Ashland, Coal Strip, Hysham, Forsyth, Shepard… you name it and I sold there!
After my first year year with Zee Medical I became the sales manager for our reps in northeastern Montana, northern Wyoming, and then most of South Dakota. In December of 1985 we moved to Missoula where I managed the reps in Kalispell and Bozeman. Then in 1986 I started covering northwest Montana which of course included the beautiful Flathead Valley.
Jamie & Julie both graduated from Flathead High. Jane taught school at Kila, and I sold Medical supplies and health & life insurance for Tinseth & Associates. I also officiated hundreds of Evergreen, Kila, Flathead Valley Christian School, Stillwater…other basketball games!
After a time of teaching school in Arizona, I am very thankful to be back in the Flathead Valley helping the Best Businesses do more business!!
Jayde Gorder, Sales Representative, Kalispell, Montana – Hi my name is Jayde Gorder, I am 18 years old and a lifelong resident of the Flathead Valley. I’m currently studying Sonography at Flathead Valley Community College. I decided to major in the the medical field when I started High School, something about it really interests me. I will be transferring to the University of Montana in Missoula next year to finish my pre-requisites and then head to Spokane to start the Diagnostic Medical Sonography Program. I love living in northwest Montana; there so many fun things to do and the people are so friendly. I enjoy the outdoors, fitness, and traveling.
I recently finished my first ever Bikini Physique Show…I have been training for several years now and about a year ago I decided to compete. It feels amazing to accomplish another of my many goals. I enjoy hiking, camping, boating, and many more activities involved with the outdoors.
I’m very excited that I was picked to be a part of Flathead Valley Town Talk! I love helping people promote their businesses and helping to make the Flathead Valley an even more inviting place for new people. I am excited to be able to help local businesses grow and to meet new people!
