Introducing Verna Ludvigson. She was the 2016-17 President and is now serving as Advisor! Her goal as advisor is to be the contact person between the board and the webmaster.
Verna graduated from University of Minnesota-Duluth with a BS in Home Economics Education and a minor in Health. Her career path has taken her from the Home Service Department of Minnegasco (Center Point Energy), to Litton Microwave where she oversaw the first comprehensive consumer microwave cookbook and hotline and eventually became the Director of Consumer Affairs. Missing a creative outlet, she pursued a sales career at a retail kitchen showroom in Hopkins for Automated Building Components, a division of Lyman Lumber. There, she spent three decades selling and designing cabinetry for the professional builder. Verna is now retired.
Verna has been a member of FCS Professionals for five decades because, “I have always identified as a home economist, even in a non-traditional role. You will always find people who speak your language and meet and maintain lifelong friends.”
On a personal note, Verna lives in the warehouse district of Minneapolis with her husband Mauricio.
