Meet Our Staff

Executive Director


Deb has lived in Duluth since the age of fourteen and cannot imagine being too far from The Lake (Superior), a love affair that has not waned in over thirty years. Deb is a graduate from the University of Minnesota Duluth and has collected degrees in the Fine Arts, French Language and Literature, and Laboratory Technology… she has moved beyond degree acquisition and now spends her free time with family, cats, and horses... We stand corrected... She now also holds a Master's degree in Public Administration and Policy from American University in Washington DC.

She and her family operate a “hobby” farm in Two Harbors MN. Andrea is an avid reader and horseback rider (but not simultaneously).
