Erika Willis, MS
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. My kids make me laugh, a lot.
Kee Dunning, MS, MEd, LCPC, LMFT
Kee grew up in Lander, Wyoming. From a young age Kee’s parents imparted in her a strong work ethic and a desire to contribute to the betterment of her community whenever possible. She began working full time at the age of 16 in a state-run institution for mentally challenged individuals. Because of this experience, she chose a path that ultimately led to a career in mental healthcare. She received her MSEd and her MS in Counseling at Montana State University Billings.
During her spare time, you will most often find Kee swinging, driving and putting a small white ball on any golf course in and around Billings.
If you had a superpower, what would it be? Love and respect. Make sure everyone on the planet would feel loved and whole.
What makes you laugh? All sort of goofy things. I love to have fun and love to laugh. A good old belly laugh is the best thing ever.
Megan Bloom, MA LAC
Youth Advocate at West High
When she is not working, Megan can be found planning her next adventure with her husband and 4(+) children. She also enjoys quiet moments of solitude to enjoy a good book or complete a new Pinterest project to recharge her soul.
What are you most proud of? Every one of my four children. I admire each one of them for the person they have become and most importantly, the kindness they show to others and their courage to stand up for what they believe in. They have taught me more than they will ever know.
If you had a superpower, what would it be? Time travel. The first trip would be to go back in time to be with my grandparents again. I would tell them how much they meant to me and introduce them to my incredible husband and amazing children.
What makes you laugh? My active, gregarious, compassionate, wonderful family. We bicker, we disagree, but more than anything, we love and we LAUGH!
Georgia Cady, LAC
Youth Victims of Human Trafficking Case Manager/Crisis Intervention
Georgia spent the first 16 years of her life growing up on the Northern Cheyenne Indian Reservation where she learned a deep respect for the Native culture. Family is everything to Georgia and when she is not at work she is enjoying many great adventures with her family at her country home. She is most at home in her greenhouse, and with her chickens. Both bring her peace and great joy, not to mention the thrill of sharing in the harvest of vegetables and eggs with friends.
If you had a super power, what would it be? I would be able to read minds. I find people and their stories that brought them to where they are in life fascinating. If I could choose to have two super powers, the other one would be to be a genie so I could make everyone’s wishes come true.
What makes you laugh? Everything. I find humor in many things and most of all I love to make others laugh.
Chafee Foster Care Independence Program/Transitional Living Program
Afton’s grandparents were significantly influential in her development and childhood; especially through difficult times and always encouraged pursuing higher education. Afton obtained her Bachelors of Science degree in Human Services in 2018. Although she thrives on her work demands, Afton’s most rewarding challenge has been raising three strong little women.
A perfect weekend for Afton includes, spending time at home, Crafting/creating something or making a meal for my family. A brunch with sister or dinner with friends would complete the weekend.
Afton loves being in the sun always! A little bit of mountains + an ocean would be ideal at any given moment. The outdoors hold so much energy and peace.
If you had a super power, what would it be? I would love to teleport and have the ability to be anywhere at any given moment! Travel would be so easy. I could accomplish so much and visit so many places.
What makes you laugh? I love to laugh so hard it makes you cry. I love a good dad joke. Laughter is contagious and I definitely get the bug when I hear giggles. My kids constantly keep me laughing and smiling.
