CANDIDATE - SOMERSET VILLAGE BOARD
It’s about trust and transparency.
It’s about asking questions and making informed decisions.
It’s about being included and heard.
It’s about revitalizing our infrastructure and building upon our successes.
It’s about accountability and collaborative partnerships.
It’s about coming together and finding beneficial solutions.
It’s about professionalism and good intent.
These are the reasons why I’m running for the Somerset Village Board …
I grew up in rural Minnesota until 1991 when my family moved to rural England. I graduated from a public school called the Queen’s School at 16. In 1998, my family returned to America where I graduated from a public high school at 18.
In 2004, I received a bachelors with honors in Sociology and started working for the State of Minnesota. In 2008, I received my masters with honors in Human Services Leadership. The following year I became a resident of Somerset, married my husband in 2010, started a family in 2012 and gave our daughter a sister in 2014.
Professionally, I’m a Learning & Development Supervisor for Minnesota’s largest state agency. Across the state, I manage an amazing team and together we implement training for employees, volunteers, contractors, and interns. I chair and serve on several advisory committees for technology, human resources and policy initiatives. Over the years, I have picked up a handful of skills along the way.
I value my worldly experience and the time spent building relationships with my British family. Living in England made me realize that while moving was exciting and filled with memories, it lacked strong roots outside my family circle.
I want for my daughters what my husband had, an opportunity to build lifelong relationships and to have a strong bond to the community we live in. I will listen and use everything I have learned along the way to make an informed decision to give back and continuously improve Somerset.
As a potential trustee, I’m dedicated to a safe community that fosters economic, recreational, and educational prosperity while preserving our neighborhoods and public amenities, encouraging community pride and participation.
To improve community collaboration and transparency, I will build trust. As a certified self-mediator for over 6 years, I teach employees the art of professionally handling conflict before it turns into a crisis. At the end of the day, I never take things personally and will help to find a resolution which will work for our community.
At the end of the day, do you want individuals who truly listen, value your opinion, and fight for what is right?
We will listen, learn and lead. On Tuesday, January 7th, vote for Brandon Koziol, Chris Moreno and Julie Lange, trustees you can trust.
