Lentz has been with the Germain Organization for 22 years and has overseen service department operations at six stores for Rick Germain.

She grew up on a farm in Southern Minnesota where her mother and father were not blessed with a boy, but rather 4 girls. Her father was influential in the belief “the work has to be done and you’re going to do it." Without knowing it, he encouraged her to believe that there are no gender specific roles in life and the Germain family agrees.
