Loanne comes from long history of administrative assistant positions (a.k.a. everyone’s favorite person in the office), including 9 years in merchandising at Dayton’s Department Store and 24 years at Target in Risk Insurance, Personnel, Corporate Communications and Marketing. She says she met Gail at Target before she was dry behind her ears. Loanne was a car hop at an A&W root beer stand for her first job, and she was also a cosmetologist in another lifetime. We’ve considered creating a Catholic Schools Hair Salon with Loanne as the Expert Beautician, but the idea hasn’t panned out quite yet.
Loanne spent over one year in Liberia, West Africa, leaving just prior to the 1980 coup. She is an outstanding card maker and scrap booker, and she also enjoys sewing, needlecraft, gardening, reading and traveling. Loanne has 2 children and 6 grandchildren (they all get older, but thankfully, she doesn’t), and she loves little kids and animals – especially dogs (although she doesn’t have one right now.). Loanne lives in Brooklyn Park where she bought the family home she started out in at age 3 and remembers when it was all surrounded by farm fields.
