Owner for 12+ Years
Please tell us about your education & accomplishments.
I have a bachelor’s degree in education, Mass Communications and 45 additional master’s credits. I am a teacher at Cambridge-Isanti High School and a part-time stand-up comedian. Over the years, I have won numerous writing, coaching and educational awards. Most recently (in 2020), I was awarded District 911 Teacher of Excellence and East Central Minnesota Cooperative Teacher of Excellence in Innovation.
Why do you want to serve on the Board of Directors for City Center Market?
I love the City Center Market, and I want to become part of the decision-making process in the organization. Being part of the board will give me a better understanding of the organization and give me a chance to give back to the community.
What qualifications or experience do you have that will benefit the Board?
Over the years, I have served in numerous leadership positions, and I will be that experience to the board. I also have Celiac Disease, which gives me great insight into the gluten-free life and the necessity of keeping excellent gluten-free selections at the Market.
What is your vision for the future of our co-op and your contribution?
I like where things are, but I would like to see a few more community events and educational opportunities. My personal contribution will be to plug me in where needed to maximize my skills.
Is there anything else you’d like to tell us? Do you have other knowledge or experiences that you see as being related to the work of the Board?
Over the last year, I have completely changed my life by eating healthier, which is largely due to the City Center Market. However, I believe many people haven’t yet discovered how vital this Market is and will realize this with some education and exposure.
