Meet Addie Seefeldt
Assistant Department Manager – Laboratory Products
Educational Background: UW-River Falls, Bachelor of Science – Animal Science
Professional Background: I’ve been in the dairy and food industry for 15 years. Prior to coming to Nelson-Jameson, I worked 13 years in a food and environmental laboratory, testing water and wastewater, cheese and food products, and payment milk samples.
What brought me to Nelson-Jameson: I’ve been at Nelson-Jameson now for 2-1/2 years. Knowing people who worked here, and after hearing what a great company Nelson-Jameson is, I decided to apply for one of the open positions back in 2020—and the rest is history!
Career Milestone: I consider my current role at Nelson-Jameson an accomplishment and a milestone in my career. I’m proud of what I’ve been able to do since coming here, and I’m proud to be able to represent the company in this capacity. All of my past experiences over the years have played a part in who I’ve become professionally and everything I’ve been able to accomplish throughout my career.
My motivation to be a leader: I was motivated to step into a leadership role because of the amazing team here at Nelson-Jameson. The support has been incredible, and I enjoy learning everyday. I want to help others learn, grow, and succeed in their roles as well.
My role model: I’ve been fortunate to have several women supervisors throughout my career—both past and present. I consider them all important role models as they each have motivated me to be the best version of myself. I’m extremely lucky to continue to work closely with all of them!
My advice for future women in leadership: If you are aspiring to be a leader, don’t hesitate to ask for guidance or help along the way. There are a lot of people on your side who want to see you succeed and are willing to help in any way they can.
