Mary Swenson works with the Institute on the Environment as the fiscal lead, which entails overseeing budgetary needs and accounting.
The University of Minnesota has been a common thread throughout Mary’s life, and one that has come full circle. During her years as an undergraduate, she met her future husband and they graduated together after earning bachelor’s degrees in business from the Carlson School of Management. Mary returned as an employee 14 years ago.
Now empty-nesters except for a tiny (but ferocious) miniature pinscher, Mary and her husband attend Gopher games and other activities as alumni.
