Meet the Team
A Gillette-native, Ethan founded Strand's Lawn Care as it is today in 2014. He grew up helping his father mowing lawns since about age 5 as part of the original Strand's Lawn Care. As a teenager, he spent a year on a farm in eastern South Dakota and still goes back during harvest time to this day. He enjoys spending what little free time he has in the Black Hills, the St. Anthony Dunes, and hanging out at Ice Cream Café. Ethan is a certified pesticide applicator, has extensive knowledge in the lawn, tree, and landscape industry, and continues education through various conferences and seminars.
Andria will most likely be the first person you meet at Strand's Lawn Care. She comes to us after leaving a position as an Operations Manager of a construction and home maintenance company which provided services to seniors to allow them to stay in their own homes, maintenance free. To us, she is a Jill of all trades - serving as our HR Manager, Office Manager, dispatcher, secretary, and bookkeeper, just to name a few! She holds degrees in Business Management and Psychology.
