Erika Willis, Executive Director
Erika Willis, MS
Executive Director
Erika brings over 25 years of experience working with people, teams and ideas to Tumbleweed. She thrives in environments where there is learning, growth and change and is deeply inspired by the growth process of people, ideas and businesses.

Erika has been fortunate to accomplish some things in her life, but what she is most humbled by and proud of is being a mom to two great young men.

A weekend for Erika hits a little bit of everything. A big long hike in the Beartooth Mountains is bliss. A workout that might be just a little over the top is fun. A night out on the town dancing or an evening at home alone are both weekend activities. She has embraced her introvert tendencies.

If you had a super power, what would it be? I would be able to beam myself anywhere. I am both very adventurous and efficient. So being able to wiggle my nose and be in New York City and home again by morning would just be the best.

What makes you laugh? I seriously like nothing more than laughing so hard it hurts. Kids make me laugh. I like sarcasm. My kids make me laugh, a lot.

Jamie Rettig, Director of Programs
Jamie Rettig, MA, LAC
Director of Programs
Jamie has built a career working with children, adolescents, adults and families for over 20 years. She has provided direct services and leadership in a variety of settings including youth group homes, day treatment programs, inpatient drug and alcohol rehabilitation centers and school programs.

Jamie believes really hard in people. Her years of work have given her a unique and powerful perspective on helping people. “When I see a youth or family start to believe in themselves just as hard as I do..that’s what motivates me. I absolutely know that who I am today was shaped and molded by people who cared about me and valued me and I truly want the youth we serve at Tumbleweed to have that same experience. For them to believe that magic can happen in their lives!”

Jamie loves to travel and experience new things, cultures and people but at heart she loves being at home reading, spending time outdoors or binge watching something great on Netflix.

If you had a super power, what would it be? Is blinking and traveling to the beach a super power?

What makes you laugh? My friends have the crazy ability to make me laugh till I cry. My dog…a little clumsy and is sort of a ding dong. The youth at Tumbleweed. Seldom does a day go by that one of them doesn’t make me laugh with one of their tales.

Leonard Malin, Finance and HR Director
Leonard Malin
Finance and HR Director
Leonard brings over 35 years of experience working with numbers and people to the Tumbleweed team. The learning process has always been inspiring to Leonard, which lead him to do some teaching along the way as well. “I like numbers and I love people- the more human the better.”

He has some impressive letters behind his name but the only ones that matter to him are Pops.

On a typical weekend you will find Leonard enjoying home and working on projects, out and about listening to music and enjoying a good microbrew. You will find him in the stands at the Mustangs games and is a true Montana State Bobcats fan.

If you had a super power, what would it be? If I could sing, that would be it.

What makes you laugh? Blazing Saddles and Cheers, reading the funnies before I go to bed, listening and watching someone tell a good story about themselves, my dogs Sam and Ollie and my kids.
