Vicki Bertelsen has been the billet coordinator for the Great Falls Americans for two years. She is primarily responsible for finding and interviewing host families and acting as a liaison between families and coaching.
She and her husband, Dave, first hosted a player from Calgary, Alberta, and are entering their third year as billet parents to four different players. Currently, we are housing Alaskans’ Jesse Johnson and Hayden Moistner. The Bertelsens enjoy the close relationships that develop from the billet program and encourage anyone who is interested to contact them to learn more.
There are currently 16 billet families housing 26 players. It is an exciting year for the team, and the families have been very helpful in opening their homes, cheering on the team, hosting team dinners and providing the necessary support for these young men.
Vicki and Dave have been in the Great Falls community for 30 years and are the owners of K&K Trucking, Inc. They have two grown children, Spencer and McKenna. They would sincerely like to thank the generous and kind billet families and look forward to another exciting season. Go Americans!
