Entrepreneur specializing in Board Governance, Strategic Planning and Leadership Development.

First Job

I am a daughter of a lumberjack and a member of a 4th generation forestry, logging and saw-milling family from northern MN. My first job was planting white pine trees in the forest.


My parents. My mother has an adventuresome spirit and travels all over the world. My father is the hardest working man I know and he is filled with kindness, patience and wisdom.

Proudest Accomplishment

Chairing our community’s year-long 150th Sesquicentennial celebration.

Perfect Day

A morning walk, a vanilla latte, a day on the pontoon with kids swimming in the lake, my father’s famous prime rib on the grill, an early evening sauna and a late night bonfire with a starry sky.
