Mindy grew up in Grand Rapids, returned to the area to raise her family and believes that was one of the best decisions she’s ever made. She holds a Bachelor of Business Administration degree from the University of Minnesota-Duluth and Masters in Communication from Bethel University. She most recently served as the Executive Director of River Grand Senior Living and prior to that was the Community Development Coordinator at ElderCircle, a nonprofit serving seniors. For the past ten years she has also taught Communication classes as an adjunct instructor at Itasca Community College.
A dedicated community member, she has been, and is, active with many area projects, boards and committees such as the Grand Rapids Area Chamber of Commerce Board, School District 318 Board, the Elementary Facilities Taskforce, the Noble Hall Field Turf Project, as well as serving on the ISD 318 Endowment Fund Board. In her role as Chief Development Officer, one of her responsibilities will be to increase awareness of the Grand Rapids Area Community Foundation’s role in the community and how it can join charitable intentions with community needs.
Mindy lives in Grand Rapids with her husband and three daughters and enjoys live music and all outside activities that Northern Minnesota has to offer.
