Personal Info: My boyfriend, John, and I have been together for 7 years now. We have a daughter, Luella, who is 5 years old as well as a son, Zach, who is 15. My big huge Finnish family is from the Range (Virginia/Mt. Iron, MN) so I consider that my hometown, but I graduated from Blaine High School where I still have a strong circle of friends. John’s mom is from Italy, so we have a strong Italian influence – my daughter speaks fluent Italian and I am trying to learn.

Professional Goals: I really love working at 3M and know I will have a lot of opportunity here. One of my goals is to work abroad for a period of time (3-5 years) and I really, truly would go anywhere to have that experience abroad (China? Sure! Turkey? Why not? Brazil? You betcha!). I’d like to start working towards my Master’s degree sometime in the near future as a personal goal that will fuel my professional goals. Overall I really want to experience and learn ( I love solving complex issues) vs have a clearly defined growth path so I just keep an open mind and stay flexible.

Best way to Communicate with me: Typically email,

but sometimes I get buried in it (as most people do).

Text messages are an amazing form of communication if the message is short and not complicated. I have a personal SLA of 24 hours (I try my hardest to meet) for returning people’s calls both at work and in life.

Words most people use to describe me: Outgoing, driven, direct, happy, generous, motivated, reliable, loving, funny (sometimes too sarcastic LOL).

Hobbies: Traveling is probably my #1 – I love seeing

the world, meeting new people and trying local

customs. I love getting together with friends and trying

new restaurants, spending time with my family, both

immediate and extended. Living and hanging out in

Stillwater is a daily activity (I love the town and

atmosphere) - we also spend a good portion of our

summer boating on the St. Croix. Then there’s music,

dancing and yoga….plus I love to entertain and like to

think I can throw a heck of a good party.

Personal Info

Live in Eagan with my hubby, 3 kids (Zoe 14, Steven 10, Stella 7), 2 dogs (Paris Hilton and Beckham David)

My one (and only) claim to fame is being the niece of Governor Pawlenty. It’s been an interesting 10 + years.

Professional Goals

I’m not a fan of “balance” since I don’t think it exists. But, my goal is always to try to balance my busy professional life, family and a little me time. My number one goal is to be a good role model for my kids to stay active both professionally and personally.

Best way to Communicate with me

Email, text, is best but I do take a phone call every once and a while.

Words most people use to describe me

Outgoing, driven and sometimes not political enough. Uncle Tim wants us to be like the Kennedy’s but it’s not going to happen.


As a family, the one thing we can all agree on is BASEBALL! We love the MN Twins and watching my son play in his little league.

I also work part-time at Weight Watchers to stay healthy, skinny and for extra baseball $.
