Office AssistantKetaMS@proteusinc.net(515) 348-6640

What you do in your spare time: If I’m not exploring new places and going for walks with my husband and my dog, you will find me in a garden center looking for a new plant to add to my collection, or on the phone talking with family or friends.

Favorite Produce Item: Mango! There are many varieties, some juicier than others, and I love all of them. You can make mango juice, smoothies, popsicles, add it to a salad, salsa, and the list can go on. Growing up we had mango trees on our farm. There was a very big mango tree in our backyard, and we had a swing hanging from it. Every time I eat a mango, it brings back the memory of my siblings and me playing around that swing or just sitting under the shade of the mango tree.

Jackie Hernandez-Wells

Accounting Specialist

What you do in your spare time: Reading, shop at craft stores, and watch suspense movies.

Favorite Produce Item: Fresh tomatoes are my absolute favorite. My grandpa had a garden in Fort Madison. I loved picking homegrown tomatoes with him so, so tasty. Sweet memory being with my grandpa in his garden

HR/Payroll Coordinator

Hero/Heroes: I actually have two heroes. One is my father. He has taught me to always be kind and help others because an act of kindness goes a long way and we never know when we may need the help. My other hero is my sister because she has the strength and resilience of a Superwoman.

Favorite Produce Item: My favorite produce item is avocado because it is used for a lot of Mexican dishes.
