Inside Foundant – the Blog

Meet Riley Nordgaard, Foundant’s Newest Marketing Intern

Fresh from the plains of South Dakota, I find myself in Bozeman at Montana State University to pursue a degree in Business Finance and Computer Science. I am a Lady Bobcat and will compete on the MSU Women’s Basketball Team. Following a redshirt season this year due to NCAA regulations, I intend to take the floor for two complete seasons as a proud Bobcat basketball player!

I like spending most of my free time outdoors, enjoying many lake activities such as boating and water skiing. Since my arrival in Montana, I have taken full advantage of many hiking and biking trails. In addition to the breathtaking views, I’ve fallen in love with the laid-back and compassionate nature of the residents of Bozeman and my fellow students at Montana State. I have one brother, a Carleton graduate (Northfield, MN) who resides in Minneapolis, MN as an Investment Analyst. My parents are happily married and enjoying their “empty nest” on the shores of Lake Cochrane, SD, where my brother and I grew up.

I gladly accepted a Marketing and Promotions internship in October of 2014. I am eager to broaden my experiences in the business world with the client driven campaigns Foundant provides. Connecting and collaborating with people to find the most efficient and beneficial solution is what business is all about. The hands-on and cooperative environment at Foundant Technologies really appeals to my zest for creativity and ownership. I am excited to be part of such an amazing team!
