Heidi Semmler is an Escrow Officer in Alliance Title’s Salmon, Idaho branch and has been with the company for 10 years. As an Escrow Officer, Heidi’s duties entail closing purchase and refinance transactions as well as typing up title commitments and policies. When asked what she enjoys most about what she does, she said, “I love meeting and working with people. In closings, I find myself learning a lot about our customers and their passions. A big plus is seeing them around town or on the riverbank, and we pick up right where we left off discussing that passion, whether it is fishing, hunting or just their family.”
Teamwork is Heidi’s favorite Alliance core value. She explained, “Without teamwork we wouldn’t be able to provide the excellent service that Alliance Title is known for.”
Heidi’s husband is the person she admires most because he makes her want to be a better person.
Outside of the office, Heidi and her family enjoy a wide variety of outdoor activities such as hunting, fishing, rafting, and camping.
Two Wolves, a parable by the Native American Cherokee tribe, is Heidi’s favorite quote:
One evening an old Cherokee told his grandson about a battle that goes on inside people.
He said, ‘My son, the battle is between two ‘wolves’ inside us all.
One is Evil. – It is anger, envy, jealousy, sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, false pride, superiority, and ego.
The other is Good. – It is joy, peace, love, hope, serenity, humility, kindness, benevolence, empathy, generosity, truth, compassion and faith.’
The grandson thought about it for a minute and then asked his grandfather: ‘Which wolf wins?’
The old Cherokee simply replied, ‘The one you feed.’
Author is unknown.”
Heidi said, “I love this quote because I believe that everyone in life has this battle within themselves and you and you only can control your happiness in this crazy thing called life.”
