Paul Hicks

Member Services

Paul Hicks joined the Chamber staff in September 2022 in the new Member Services position. Paul is sometimes the first point of contact new businesses have with the Chamber. He loves meeting new people and sharing what the Chamber has to offer. Paul and his wife, Amy, are also small business owners - they opened Dandelion and Burdock (men's and women's clothing store) a few years ago. Since opening his store, Paul has become active in trying to bring people to the downtown area of Fergus Falls. He also helps coach the Fergus Falls Otters girl’s soccer team.

Missy Anderson

Administrative Assistant

Missy joined the Chamber in January 2023 as the Administrative Assistant after working in the hospitality industry for seven years. Her attention to detail and love of numbers makes this the perfect position for her. Missy grew up in Otter Tail County, so moving here fourteen years ago from the Twin Cities area with her husband, Sean, was like coming home. Missy is a homebody at heart. She loves to be home, cooking for her family, and attending her son's sporting events. She is an avid Minnesota Vikings fan and can get lost in a good book for hours.
