Jeff Strand

Vice Chair

Nils Badrul

Hey everyone! My name is Nils (pronounced like “hills” but with the letter ‘N’). I enjoy biking around the neighborhood, to work, or to run errands when the weather isn’t being obnoxious. If I’m not doing that, you’d probably find me walking my two black and white dogs with my wife or at the Victory dog park enjoying the outdoors. If you run into me, please say hi! (neither I, or my dogs bite).” 

Treasurer

Jean Hawkins-Koch

I’m Jean Hawkins-Koch. I live right along the creek with my husband, daughter, two dogs, cat and two fish. I’m thrilled to be part of a neighborhood that has so many amenities and a community that is enthusiastic about its preservation. I joined the board to show my commitment to the improvement of Shingle Creek’s safety, livability, and economic opportunities.

Jared Voight

Hey there! My name is Jared Voight, and I’m the youngest board member of SCNA (only 19!). I was formerly the captain of the Patrick Henry High School robotics team, Herobotics, with whom SCNA has a partnership with. I’m currently attending the University of Minnesota – Twin Cities, pursuing a degree in environmental engineering. My biggest passions lie within goodwill, community service, & altruism, and I pursue them through an online video-gaming livestream for charity that I host twice a year within our community. If you see me at an SCNA event or meeting, don’t be afraid to say hello!

Amy Luesebrink

My name is Amy Luesebrink and as SCNA’s Administrative Director, my role is all about assisting SCNA and its volunteers to achieve their projects, goals, and the mission of their 501c 3 organization. It’s an honor working with SCNA’s team of volunteers past and present accomplishing so many amazing results. Looking forward to working with SCNA and its partners to bring many more benefits to this neighborhood, local community and the City of Minneapolis.
