There she learned about the organization's mission and was excited to be part of this non-profit, particularly after the pandemic sparked an increased need for the technology that this organization can help provide.

Hi, I'm Miranda Burfeind. I own Phone-n-Fix inside the West acres mall. We buy, sell, and repair cell phones. I myself have been in the technology world since 2005, and have always had a passion for the inner workings of electronics in general. Technology is just so fascinating. 

 

My husband Carl and I have been married since 2015. Moved to Fargo from Sioux falls also in 2015. Busy year! Lol We have since had two tiny humans. Ryker is almost 5 and Pyper is 2.5 years old. We are very family oriented and do almost everything with our kiddos. It's super nice because my husband and I are just big kids! 

 

For me, I love to play volleyball. I've been on at least one team pretty much year round since I've been in Fargo. I also call myself an amateur photographer, but I just really enjoy taking photos, primarily of friends and family.

Amy Stevahn and by day I work as a nurse practitioner in sleep medicine. I am originally from South Dakota. My husband Mike and I have 3 children, 2 of whom are adults and out of the home. We have 2 fur babies who are now considered senior dogs . I initially heard of tech4kids as Amy is a neighbor of ours and I saw she was looking for volunteers. I thought I could surly make a difference in a child’s life and help Amy as I only live 2 houses away! It’s amazing to not only be able to make a difference but to collaborate with amazing individuals.
