About Therese

Crystal is a great community and has been my home for over 25 years. My children grew up here. I love the people, neighborhoods, the parks and unique businesses.

I grew up in Davenport, Iowa. I’m the 8th child in a family of ten. I went to college at the University of Iowa, studying communication and psychology. I earned a paralegal certificate from the Philadelphia Institute and moved to Minneapolis. I eventually made Crystal my home. I have been married to Randy for 31 years. We have two sons – Rory and Jackson.

I have been doing paralegal work in one form or another for many years. Currently I have a small consulting business concentrating on family law. I also studied graphic design, earning a AAS degree. Design is necessary in many applications.

I believe in participating in my community and have been involved in many ways. Currently, I am President of the Crystal Historical Society and am on the Community Board of the New Hope YMCA.

One of the things that makes Crystal great is that our city runs efficiently. We need leadership that is responsive to community members, uses our resources carefully and has a strong vision for Crystal’s future. I am that candidate!

I appreciate your support and your vote on November 6!
