Kari Vetterly • Vibrant People of Elkhart County

We are doing a little catch up this weekend and we want to celebrate another of Elkhart County’s Vibrant People, Kari Vetterly!!!


I’m a happy person.” That’s what Kari Vetterly says about herself. “She is the ideal person to describe vibrant.” That’s what Debra Wood told us when she nominated Kari. “Happy” and “Vibrant” are certainly apt descriptions.

After you have talked with Kari, even if it’s just for a few minutes, you feel like you have made a friend. That’s the way she is. No one is a stranger for long.

Kari is a technician at Bimbo Bakery. You can hear that she likes her work as she describes her role on the muffin line. Her co-workers say Kari’s happy and energetic personality is contagious. They tell us, “You can’t be unhappy when you work around Kari. Even when the days get long and the job is unusually demanding, she always seems to stay positive. She never has a bad word to say about anybody.”

Friends say Kari’s smile is the most noticeable thing about her. It’s wide and bright and she wears it often. Kari says she loves to make people smile. “Maybe I can make their lives just a little better,” she says. You can be sure Kari does that every day.
