Coalition Spotlight: Meet SUP Coalition Chair, Amanda Larson

Planner with Sherburne County's HHS Member since 2013

Q: What excites you about the SUP Coalition and its work?

A: I have a personal and professional commitment to helping build a healthy community where I live and work. A healthy community starts with healthy youth. I hope to bring my skills as a grant writer, program evaluator, and planner to strengthen the work of the SUP Coalition.

Q: How & why would you encourage other people in the community to support the efforts of the SUP Coalition?

A: Mental and chemical health does not get the attention it deserves in society. It remains highly stigmatized, and access to services for these issues is not readily accessible. Any work we can do in prevention and early intervention helps build awareness and gives support to those that need it.

Q: What do you do in your spare time?

A: I have a 13-month old son named Cash who takes up all of my spare time. Cash loves to swim, go to the zoo, read, and play with trains. When Cash is not doing these things with my husband and me, I like to read, workout, or cook. Oh, and I like to go to Costco and Target!
