Get to know a little bit about Jeanna below!
Hometown: Wahpeton, ND
Why are you in Fargo?
My family all moved to Fargo when I was in college so it was naturally where I wanted to be.
What do you do in your free time?
Watch movies, hang out with my family and my “man Friend”. Attend activities that my boys are involved in. Play with my three dogs who are like an extended version of my kids.
What’s your favorite hidden gem that you’ve discovered so far in Fargo?
I think that this is a cheesy answer but truly Emerging Prairie is a hidden gem. In my former position I brought a lot of people from out of town to 1 Million Cups and they were amazed at the event and really intrigued by Emerging Prairie as an organization.
How did you first hear of Emerging Prairie?
I first heard of Emerging Prairie when I attended 1 million cups 4 years ago, and was always interested in what they did and stand for.
As a new member of the EP team, what are you most looking forward to?
Being a part of an organization that is responsible for so much change in the community and so much community building. Also, being able to bring some of my attitude and flair to the team and events.
