Grant Management Specialist
I joined the UMVRDC in October of 2020 as the Grant Management Specialist. I am excited to be part of a team that works with grant funds to assist and support our rural communities. I have written and managed several federal grants. I was the Fiscal Director at United Community Action Partnership (UCAP) in Marshall, Minnesota for many years and was responsible for all the financial and some compliance pieces of the grants. UCAP wrote and administered many Federal, State and local grants and also worked with some of the same grants that the UMVRDC does, like the Small Cities Development Program grants. I live on Big Stone Lake, with my husband Rick. I am passionate about living in our rural area and helping the region to thrive.
