Katie Nelson-Heil is a Director of Application Development with Ameriprise Financial. She lives in Hudson, Wisconsin with her husband and their two sons. They enjoy staying active and feel very fortunate to live in a community that provides so many opportunities for outdoor “play”. The Willow River State Park is one of their favorite places to go to burn off some energy and take in the incredible scenery. In addition to staying active, she is committed to the health and wellness of her family and therefore understands the important role that food plays in their day-to-day life. She believes that everyone should have affordable access to high-quality, local goods and she is excited to have the opportunity to aid Hudson in opening a grocery cooperative.
