As Animal Adventure’s Office Manager, I do a little bit of everything, from planning meetings 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 coordinate filing of trademarks and copyrights, and manage our internet 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 am very 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 Michael shortly after college, and we had two kids: Lauren, who now lives in Minneapolis, and Tyler, who passed away in 2021 at age 24. We miss him every hour of every day. 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!
