Cook County and Minnesota’s North Shore has been Nan's home now since 1994. She was raised in another favorite Minnesota destination – Grand Rapids. She has two sons and four grandchildren!
Before buying Lockport Marketplace & Grill (Lutsen) in 1994, Nan attained two degrees from the U of Minnesota and spent over three decades working for the American Red Cross as Instructor, Instructor-Trainer, and Director of the New England Chapter of Health and Safety Services.
Nan has enjoyed the North Shore of Minnesota since the 60’s, arranging camping trips for my family in the BWCA while raising her two sons in Duluth. Now Nan spends her free time golfing, skiing, fishing, hiking and bird hunting throughout Cook and Lake Counties. She finds that Cook County offers her everything she likes to do right at her fingertips. Nan says "I pinch myself everyday on how lucky I am to live here."
