I am pleased to be serving as the Chair of Bridging Brown County. I am the VP of Business Affairs at the New Ulm Area Chamber of Commerce. I have been there for 15+ years. I oversee our Network New Ulm Leadership Program as part of my job along with several other programs. I do the daily accounting for the Chamber, the Convention and Visitors Bureau, and the New Ulm Business & Retail Association as well as several smaller committees. Outside of the Chamber, I am treasurer for the German-Bohemian Heritage Society and the MN District Goldwing Road Riders Association. I am married to Rick. We have 3 daughters and 3 grandchildren.
I am a 2012 graduate of the BBC Leadership Program. Even though I have lived in Brown County most of my life, I learned a lot about my neighboring communities. I highly recommend the program to everyone! It’s a great opportunity to learn more about Brown County and to have another group of people to network with.
