Pathway to SPUR
Greetings SPUR members and guests!
My name is Nate Carlson, a senior at St. Olaf College with a major in Economics with an emphasis in Public Policy Analysis. I come to SPUR as an intern through my connections with the Northfield EDA. This summer I had the opportunity to be an intern for the Northfield Community Development Department. Under the direction of Michelle Merxbauer and Chris Hieneman, I spent my summer analyzing the current workforce and business market of Northfield and putting together reports that could assist the EDA and Community Development staff with all things related to economic development.
After a presentation I took part in for the EDA, Megan Tsui approached me with yet another opportunity to enhance myself within the community development sphere. She presented me with the opportunity to be an intern for SPUR/NEC. I am thrilled to have the opportunity to assist Megan and the NEC/SPUR.
I possess skills of web design, data analysis, market research, oral presentation, and summary reporting. With these skills and a strong work ethic, I hope to bring further energy and success to SPUR and the NEC.
Look for new aspects to both the SPUR and NEC websites! I encourage feedback for any additional info for the websites.
