As Animal Adventure’s Office Manager, I do a little bit of everything, from planning lunches, employee contests and events, to monitoring our tech needs and handling tech issues. I do the purchasing and coordinate maintenance for the office, help with accounting, and manage projects. I obtain and renew importer licensing for the different states, file for copyrights for our products and track our trademarks and domains. My job is to make sure our employees have everything they need to do their jobs well, and that the office is running smoothly. I’ve been with the company since 2018, and it’s by far the most fun place I’ve ever worked! I’m so happy to be part of the Animal Adventure team.
Personal facts: I graduated from St Olaf College with a double major in French / French History and Civilization. I received my Master’s in International Management (MIM) from the University of St. Thomas. I married my best friend shortly after college, and we have two grown kids: Tyler and Lauren. When I’m not working at Animal Adventure I can be found at my other job: owning and managing an Irish Dance studio called Rince na Gréine (Dance of the Sun) with my daughter, Lauren, who is the Dance Director there. A dream come true!
