Hello! My name is Emma Disterhoft, and I am the Logistics Manager at Junior Achievement of Eastern Iowa. I am from Marengo, Iowa and attended Central College in Pella, IA. Go Dutch! I graduated in 2018 with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Business Management-Marketing and minors in Spanish and Accounting. This is my first job in the “real world” and I am so glad to have found a home at JA. A few fun tidbits to know about me- I love cats, office supplies, anything involving cheese, and nature.
Part of My Job: Watching each of our events come to life and seeing our WHY in action when I teach a JA class.
Spot in Eastern Iowa: This is not so much a place but a feeling. My parents’ house on Christmas Eve is always full of love, family, comfort, and warmth. If there’s a place that has that, I’ll be there!
Quote: "The sunshine walks beside her” – lyrics by Nanci Griffith. Be the light!
Things to do after 5 PM: Usually something involving good food, good company, or good entertainment- hopefully all three!
