Darcie Winkler


Senior Secretary

I’m originally from Billings and have grown up going to many events at MetraPark and attending MontanaFair. I got the opportunity to intern for MontanaFair in 2014 as a marketing intern. After the end of my internship I was hoping for a chance to gain a full time position at MetraPark. In spring of 2015 Jamie Porter reached out to me to see if I was available to be an intern again only for a longer period March-October. This would allow me to learn more about MetraPark outside of the fair. I also did a huge project for MontanaFair because 2015 was our 100 year anniversary. When my internship ended in October, I started to work in the Box Office and as a runner. Keeping MetraPark as close to me as possible. Around December I got the announcement of Metra needing a full time employee for this position. I applied, interviewed and was lucky enough to be the one they selected for the job! Now I’m the Senior Secretary in the Administration Office and the Commercial Vendor Manager for Fair!
