Jeremy and Holly Ottmar, living in Bismarck, had a dream of coming home. Jeremy knew he wanted to farm full time and Holly wanted her own business in Massage Therapy. Moving home had been a discussion for five years or more. Living in Bismarck, Jeremy worked for Butler Machinery and Holly worked as a Dental Assistant, but also found a way to work and attend the Bismarck Massage Therapy Institute of Mild Therapeutic Studies. Holly tells me,” It was not an easy decision. Jeremy knew he wanted to farm; but I had developed several massage clients and was devoted to them and I did not want to start all over again. But in July of this year we took the big step, sold the house in Bismarck and our new world opened up in Mott. Surprisingly it was not a challenge at all. I gradually started working and my clientele has grown and is growing. We bought my grandmother’s home and now, with four children I have the privilege of having my business and working on “mommy time”, which gives me all the time I have always wanted to have with our children. Moving here I am able to slow down, be a Mommy and still have time for the career I love. I have a wonderful partner in Cameo (Swindler) Frieze. My portion of the partnership is Natural Knead for Balance and Cameo’s is Core by Cameo and we are located in the Cardinal Building on Brown Ave. Jeremy and I are very happy we have come home.
Editor’s note: Jeremy is the son of Darrel and Jan Ottmar and Holly, the daughter of Floyd and Arlene Friez.) “Coming Home,” next week we will visit with Alex and Charlotte (Miller) Aldinger. If anyone else have similar stories please please contact Joyce Hinrichs at 701-824-4132.
