Sara Jensen Formal

Education: B.A. in Public Relations with Minors in Speech Communication and Writing from Mount Mercy University in Cedar Rapids, Iowa

Background: I’m originally from Hastings, Minnesota.  I went to college in Cedar Rapids and lived there for seven years before moving back to the Twin Cities.  My background is in communications and professional/non-profit association management (assisting 501(c)(3) and (c)(6) organizations with meeting planning, administrative functions, board and volunteer relations), and I love learning new things.

I have always wanted to work in higher education, and I’m excited to be a part of a team whose mission is to prepare students to be successful leaders, educators and communicators in the agricultural, food and natural resources career fields.  My husband is a staunch Hawkeye fan, so please let me know if you know of any good deals on Gopher apparel (…that I will buy in secret)!

Interests:

I enjoy event and meeting planning, teamwork, relationship building, making lists and staying organized.

My ideal day would include a trip to the dog park with my family, 70 degree weather, and ice cream.
