Tara Scott

I love getting an opportunity to help people find a company to call “home”. I’ve been with NISC since August of 2011, and I can’t imagine myself working for another company. I appreciate NISC’s dedication to their employees, our culture, and the flexibility I have with my job – and my amazing co-workers! In addition to hiring great talent, I also assist in onboarding new hires for our Missouri office. I know how daunting it can be to start all over at a new company, so I hope to make that transition a little easier for all our new faces! Outside of work you will find me enjoying one of my (too many) hobbies: sewing, cooking, dance, geocaching, or hula hooping. Be warned: Hula hoop dance parties have been known to spring up at times. Not that I am taking any responsibility for those…

For me, recruiting is all about the thrill of making the right connections. While I love finding candidates who will help NISC’s mission, I’m also sincerely interested in ushering candidates toward careers that they will find enjoyable and rewarding for many years to come. Sometimes I feel like my real title should be match-maker! When I am not at NISC, you might find me playing cards, spending time with my eight brothers and sisters or taking a walk with my husband and adorable mini-labradoodle.

Anne Palmquist

I grew up in rural Wisconsin surrounded by lions and tigers and bears…kidding! Well, about the lions and tigers anyways…In all seriousness, I had no idea what being a recruiter entailed, or that it was a career path I could explore. My passion has always been helping others, which explains why I have generally been given the nickname “mom” in all work, social and prior school settings. My first exposure to a recruiter was in working with one on my initial full-time position after college. Having someone genuinely care about ensuring the position they had available was the best fit for myself as well as the company was a unique experience. I am thankful to say that experience came full circle, and I have been in the recruiting and human resources industry the past few years. Now, I get to share my excitement in helping determine if a candidate is a good cultural fit for NISC and vice versa, while throwing in an occasional bear story here and there.

Emily Foreman

I am passionate about building relationships with anyone I meet. Recruitment allows me to do so on a professional, yet personable level, with both our candidates and hiring managers. It gives a glimpse into a candidate’s life journey, and I love seeing how they can fit into NISC’s culture.

When I’m not working, you can find me spending time with my husband and toddler, playing with our Bogle Millie, eating my way through new restaurants, or relaxing at the lake on the weekend.

August Taylor

I am originally from Sturgeon Bay, WI but have called Bismarck, ND home since 2015. I first joined NISC in 2019 in the Professional Services division. After a yearlong hiatus, I have rejoined the ranks at NISC on People Services team in 2022.
I am passionate about meeting and learning about people and their stories. The role of recruiting gives me the unique opportunity to connect with people on a professional level and educate them on the opportunities available at NISC. I love attending college career fairs and visiting with young professionals in early stages of their job search.
In my spare time I enjoy watching all my Wisconsin sports teams, running, golfing, playing basketball, and brewing beer. I married my lovely wife Rachel in 2020 and together we have a dog Holly!
