Gwen was born and raised in Fargo. After graduating from high school, she stayed close to her roots and attended North Dakota State University. During her time as a student, Gwen was active on campus in Greek Life, Bison Ambassadors, and Blue Key Honors Society. She focused her studies on communication and business administration and graduated with a degree in Strategic Communication.
In Gwen’s words, she humbly brags that she has the best parents in the world. Her dad and mom live close by in Fargo where her mom is a teacher and her dad works for a transportation company. She also has an older brother and a sweet pup, Sammy. Her favorite family memories are 4th of July festivities, brunch every Sunday, and cheering on the Minnesota Twins.
In Gwen’s free time you can usually catch her reading a book, perfecting her baking skills or enjoying time with friends and family at the lake.
“I try to understand every day how deeply precious life is. If I were to be known for anything, I hope it would be that I made those around me feel valued and understood. I’m motivated by experiences that lead to sharing a laugh, a story, or a memory with someone. It’s those exchanges that seem small at the time, but have so much significance. Those moments ignite the fire in me. I feel like I get to fulfill my dream job at Hatch Realty in that I have the opportunity to be my authentic self while simultaneously being a resource, confidant, and friend to everyone who walks through our door.”
Gwen’s tip is to keep a good book on you wherever you go.
