Originally born in Wels, Austria, Gita’s family moved to Sioux Falls when she was seven years old. Gita and Jan share responsibilities at the front desk in our Sioux Falls office, greeting clients, directing incoming calls, scheduling appointments, and helping with a variety of administrative duties. Gita is very community-minded, serving on committees and in organizations too numerous to mention. She has held pretty much every leadership role in Optimists and has been a Diplomat for the Sioux Falls Chamber of Commerce for many years. In the last few years she's added SD Art for Arthritis Gala Chair, and 100+ Women Who Care board member. Gita, husband Mike, and their sweet dog Zeb consider themselves lucky that all of their children , grandchildren, and many of their extended family, live in the area and spend time together as often as possible.
