I have worked full time for the City of Kearney as a Risk Management Coordinator for the last 7 years, which working part time for The Rustic Patch. After my battle with cancer and becoming grandma, my priorities have changed.

Mindy Straight

Graphic Designer and Engraver

Hey guys!! My name is Mindy or I also go by Shep! I was in the military for 10 years and then I was a correctional officer for 3 years. Before the military I went to Graphic Design school in Denver, Colorado and enjoyed every minute of it. Now I am here at The Rustic Patch bringing your vision/design to life. You might not see me very often but know I am always down at the wood shop cutting out your class door charm or creating a one of a kind item that you have been dreaming of.
