Community Engagement Manager
Experience with UWCM?
I started working here in late November 2022.
What do you do at United Way of Central Minnesota? I am the Community Engagement Manager.
I oversee our community groups, I get people connected and I make new friends in the process!
What aspect of your role do you enjoy the most?
I just love meeting new people and learning their story. We are all just one piece in this giant puzzle called life and it is so fascinating to see how our pieces fit together.
“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, 'Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?' Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It's not just in some of us; it's in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.” – Marianne Williamson

What do you enjoy doing when you are not working?
I love to hang out with my husband, Aksel, and our two puppers, Tucker and Trey. This job is pretty social, which I LOVE, but at the end of the day there is nothing better than wagging tails, puppy kisses and snuggles to come home to.
What is one thing on your bucket list?
To become a mom.
