She has worked in sales for Pharmacists Mutual Insurance for 15 years and recently purchased the clothing store her mother started fifteen years ago called Denims and Diamonds.

“I was interested in joining Heartland’s board because of the passion they have for their customers,” said Sonnenschein. “I look forward to sharing in that approach and working for the best interests of the electric consumers.”
