About...

     I have always lived in and loved the Northland of Minnesota.  The middle child of a large, hardworking family and an incurable optimist, I strive to support small, local business in the rural areas I have been a part of for many years. Repping keeps me on my toes learning fun new products and challenges me professionally and creatively. I love finding the perfect product or item for each store and providing support to make every customer a success! 

Karri

What's your favorite thing to do?

    My favorite thing to do is be a mom.  However, in my spare time I love to exercise and lead an active lifestyle - run, bike, swim, walk, attend yoga classes and most recently spin. I want to climb a mountain someday!  I enjoy cleaning and organizing almost anything, trying new restaurants with friends, and spending time with family at the cabin up north.

Life Motto?

    "Anything worth doing is worth doing well."

About...

    I grew up in Hibbing, MN and love my Iron Range roots!  After graduating
from the University of Minnesota, I worked for their Campus Recreation Dept for 11 years before becoming a stay-at-home-mom for the next 7 years.  A business connection led me to Blonde Comet and the world of sales about 4 years ago. 
I enjoy working with customers, sharing the wonderful lines we represent and helping customers choose just the right thing for their store.
