Hi, I’m Erica and I am the 22-23 TESC President, and former Treasurer! I’ve spent my career in banking, specializing in Regulatory Compliance and Risk Management, and I love what I do! I am the Vice President, Corporate Compliance Officer for Heartland Financial (HTLF); which is the parent company to 12 branded member banks, and over 150 bank branches nationwide. We have been stationed at Ellsworth for a little over 3 years; however, my husband, Jeff (Chaps), has spent over half of his 20-year career here at Ellsworth and currently serves as the Operations Group Deputy Commander. In my free time, I enjoy camping with the family/dogs, exploring the Black Hills, and participating in community events. I’m always up for Bingo, Bunco or brunch, so let me know if you need a partner in crime! ☺
Hi, I'm Val and I'm the new 2nd Vice President for TESC! I'm from New Jersey originally, but my Husband Mike (LOBO), and I have been at Ellsworth for three years. I work as the VP of Business Development for the Rapid City Rush and have had the privilege to spend most of my professional career in different areas of business operations in professional hockey. When I'm not at the rink, I like to hang with Mike and our rescue pup, Derby, explore the Black Hills, and check out new restaurants and bars. I'm excited to be involved with TESC and can't wait to get to know everyone.
Hey there! My name is Megan Dickerson. I am the new Treasurer for the spouse’s club. I have been married to my husband Matthew (Hi-Side) for 12 years. We have two daughters (5 & 2). We have been in Ellsworth and part of the 37th Bomb Squadron for 8 years of our career. He just recently transferred into a Reserve job, and we plan to stay at Ellsworth for the foreseeable future. In my personal life, I am a Realtor at Ascend Realty. I fell in love with the Black Hills and the Ellsworth community and am passionate about helping others do the same. In my free time, I enjoy spending time outside with my family and working on a variety of DIY projects.
Hi! My name is Stephanie Sullivan and I am the 22–23 TESC secretary. My background is in Physical Therapy and I have my Doctorate of Physical Therapy degree from UNMC in Omaha. I love helping people, and 6 years ago I made the switch and became a Healthy Home Advvocate for Norwex. Now I get to teach people about the adverse health effects that come from using everyday chemical cleaning and how to make simple swaps to have an improved quality of life!
Hello! My name is Suesan Coleman. I'm an Army brat, and Air Force Veteran, and a proud wife of an Air Force B-1B WSO. My husband Lincoln ’Crockett’ just wrapped up his command with the 37th BS Tigers (HARRUMPH!). We have two awesome kiddos, Lola (14) and Linc (almost 12). We’ve been a part of the Ellsworth AFB community for a combined 10 years and call the Black Hills ‘home’. I’m a preschool teacher at Calvary Christian School and am also currently working on my graduate degree in Healthcare Administration (Boiler Up!) so I can eventually serve and work with our Veterans at the VA Clinic. TESC has provided me the opportunity to stay connected with and continue supporting our military and Veteran community.
Hi my name is Leah Parker. I am the new Scholarship Chair for the Spouse's Club. We have been stationed at Ellsworth and part of the 37th Bomb Squadron for just over two years. My husband Jason (PaZ) and I have been married for 14 years and have three wonderful children. We love getting outside and exploring all that the Black Hills has to offer.
Hello, my name is Shana. My husband, Theron, is a civil engineer in the DIRTBOYZ shop with the CE Squadron. We have been here since October 2019 and have really enjoyed it! I’m originally from Las Vegas, NV. I have been an event planner for over 20 years. We have four children, 3 boys and a girl ages 22, 19, 14 and 12. We also have 2 dogs, Smokey and Xena. I love anything and everything outdoors, crafting, sports, and meeting new people. I feel very blessed to have met so many great people here that welcomed my family to Ellsworth with open arms, and be able to be an active member of Team Ellsworth Spouses’ Club! I look forward to meeting you!
Hi, I am Tonya! My husband retired from the Air Force and we made SD our home! My family and I enjoy volunteering in our community, playing games, exploring the outdoors and everything SD has to offer. I am the Membership Chair and cannot wait to meet everyone.
My name is Maria Pino. I am married to Brian Pino. We have two very hyper kids: Edward (4.5) and Sayward (3). I was born in the Philippines and was raised in Virginia Beach, VA. I recently retired from the Air Force after 20 years in the service. We have been stationed here at Ellsworth since 2019. We love all the great rock climbing places it has to offer!!!
Hey! I'm Toni, I've been at Ellsworth for about six years. Loved it so much I decided to retire here. My husband is still on active duty, so we are just enjoying the ride with our two girls, a dog and a cat. Love the opportunity to continue to serve Ellsworth families with the TESC.
Hi! My name is Beth Parker and I'm the new Social Media Chair! I am married to my husband Jeff of 16 years, who works in the Fabrication Flight and we have 2 children. We just moved here this past Oct and we are hoping to make South Dakota our forever home. I've been military my whole life, from the child, to active duty to now a spouse. Previously we were stationed at Wright-Patt AFB in Ohio where I held several positions throughout my time there (such as Vice President, Social Chair, Secretary and Social Media). I look forward to meeting and helping out the spouses here at Ellsworth and hopefully being a resource for those new to the military life. When I'm not volunteering, I can be found in my kitchen where I work from home or finding another creative outlet!
My name is Sarah Sheffield. My husband and I both grew up in Salt Lake City, Utah. We went to the same high school but we didn’t officially meet until years later in Washington DC while I was on an internship through the University of Utah. I earned an undergraduate degree in English Literature and then worked full time while I waited for Joseph to graduate from the Air Force Academy. Two days after graduation we were married and moved to Del Rio, Texas for pilot training. Our adventures began in Texas with the B-1 and we have been blessed ever since. Our assignments have taken us to Texas, Alabama, Germany, Virginia, Guam and South Dakota three times. We have six children and the youngest two were born here in Rapid City between 2004-2008. Our four oldest children went to middle school and high school here between 2012-2016 and are now out of the house and on their own. We have two high schoolers here with us now and we keep busy going to football games, basketball games, track meets and cheer competitions. This assignment is as dream come true and we are so happy to call the Black Hills and Ellsworth, AFB “Home” once more. We love our Raider Families and our Raider Heritage! Team Ellsworth Spouses Club has provided a place a belonging, friendship, and an opportunity to be a Force for Good far beyond my own capacity and I am honored to serve with such an amazing Team!
I am originally from Littleton, CO and met Seth in high school. I got my BS in horticulture from Colorado State University while he was at USAFA. Working in the "green industry" isn't as portable as one would hope so when we arrived in Rapid the first time, I changed careers and began working as a 911 dispatcher for Pennington County. Best. Job. Ever! The schedule is as intense as the work itself, and although I picked it up again in Abilene, I laid it to the side to be a stay at home mom: actually this is the best job ever! Dylan is 6 and Ryan is 3. We also keep the house busy with our two retiree greyhounds, Kona and Juno. We have had some amazing duty stations, but are over the moon to be back at Ellsworth, which we both call "home". Aside from keeping everyone in my house on track, I enjoy running, gardening, volunteering where ever I can, and basically goofing off for fun! I am really looking forward to getting involved with TESC!
My name is Sheryl Cronan. I'm married to Robert (Bob) Cronan from the 28th Civil Engineer Squadron. He retired as a CMSgt from CE in 2011 & was hired right back in as a civilian. I have 3 kids (Marissa 28 y/o, Kyle 19 y/o & Jordan 17 y/o) & my pup, Duchess. I have loved our Air Force life/family so try to stay as active as I can. I've been involved in the spouses club for years & have served as President, Treasurer, Ella's Closet Chairperson & Parliamentarian. I love getting out about in the Black Hills paddle boarding & hiking with my family. I also enjoy yoga and just discovered rock painting which is surprisingly therapeutic. Looking forward to meeting you all!!
