Welcome to the Silver Oaks family, Bailey and Brittany! In the past month, we’ve welcomed these two talented professionals to our team. Read more to get to know our newest team members.
Bailey Schober, Project Manager and Corporate Marketing
Hometown: I grew up in Maquoketa, Iowa, but now I live in Muscatine, Iowa.
Background: I have a B.S. in Agricultural Communications from Iowa State University. I worked for an agricultural technology start up company for 1 and a half years as a Marketing and Sales Coordinator. I also worked at Iowa State University College of Engineering as a Communications Specialist for 2 years before becoming a Project Manager at Silver Oaks.
I’m inspired by… People who are warm, kind, positive, innovative, hard-working, and full of life. I’m also inspired by cozy homes and good conversation.
When I’m not at Silver Oaks, I’m…Visiting friends and family, trying new restaurants or breweries, gardening, going to concerts, watching or playing sports, or spending time outside – on the river, in a pool, walking my dog, or being on our family farm.
Family: My husband Ben and I have a Miniature Australian Shepherd named Ellie.
Urban or Rural Life? I grew up on a farm north of Maquoketa, IA so I’m a country girl at heart.
Favorite places to travel: I’ve travelled abroad to Kenya, Spain and Mexico. I’d love to travel to Norway next. My goal is to travel to all of the National Parks in the United States.
Guilty pleasures: I’m slightly embarrassed by how much I love The Bachelorette/The Bachelor. I’m also a huge news junkie and have watched The Today Show just about every day of my life.
Brittany French, Administrative Assistant
Hometown: I live in Rock Island, IL where I was born and raised.
Background: I graduated from Rock Island High School in June 2005 and studied Nursing for 2 years at Black Hawk Community College. I worked in retail management for 5 years and retail sales, customer service, and advertising for 15 years.
Family: My husband, Matt, and I have 4 children — Becca (13), Brayden (10), Elizabeth (7), and Gisella (1). Last, but certainly not least, we have a dog, Justice, and 2 cats, Bella and Bane.
Books or movies? Movies – I am a huge Marvel fan!
I’m inspired by… My biggest inspiration in life was my late Great Grandmother Ada.
Dogs or cats? I’m definitely more of a cat person.
Favorite Food? Anything Mexican. I love my tacos.
Guilty pleasures: I would have to say that I love to sing. If I do get some time to myself to have some fun, I like to find karaoke to do or just have my own at-home karaoke session.
