My Dynamic Discs Story:  I grew up around Emporia and attended Emporia State on a track scholarship starting in 2004. Lo and behold, Jeremy Rusco was also on the track team at ESU. Later in college, I picked up the sport of disc golf as many of my friends did. It seemed everyone my age was playing disc golf. My boyfriend and now husband, Michael, started playing as well. We always enjoyed playing a casual game here and there. It was an easy way to get out, enjoy the weather and each other’s company. We occasionally played Peter Pan, but Jones West was our go-to course. This went on for a couple of years. As time went on, life became more demanding and we both eventually stopped playing. Fast forward to 2017. We were married and had a 20 month old running around. March 2017. I was still in the hospital after having our second child, and as I was scrolling through social media, I saw a post my friend Kris Edson had shared. I had known Kris through school and a local gym, and I had also worked with his wife, Alison. The post relayed that Dynamic Discs was looking for help at the warehouse. Ding ding! I was ready for something new. I instantly contacted Kris with my information and told him I would apply for any position at Dynamic Discs. I had already seen the growth of the company and the impact it had on the community, and I had heard nothing but great things about Dynamic Discs. I wanted to be a part of it! After a referral from Kris and Alison, I was able to interview with Shane and Adam Searle for a spot in the accounting office. I was hired the week of GBO. That was an eye opener as I was thrown right into the mix. The environment at Dynamic Discs has reignited the spark I had for the sport, and I quickly purchased a bag and FILLED it with Trilogy discs. Michael has also expressed more interest in the sport, as I have also purchased and filled a bag for him. We are excited to introduce the sport to our kids. As our family continues to grow, disc golf and Dynamic Discs will be a part of it. #GrowTheSport #BeDYNAMIC
