Sue Taylor- President
I am Sue Taylor, a member since 2007. I am a mother of three, a wife and work here in Hastings. I believe in the importance of healthy whole organic foods for me, my family and our community. Spiral Natural Foods Co-op plays an important role in our city as a store, gathering place and hub of knowledge and resources.
Alex Mohrbacher- Vice President
Alex has a long history with cooperatives, and is looking forward to representing membership interests in promoting co-op values, local foods, and long-term viability of the store. I believe the co-ops promote strong communities and strong local economies, and are excellent business models for providing services that others cannot or will not provide. I am a student at Mitchell Hamline School of Law. My wife and I have a one year old daughter.
Ed Schiefelbein- Past President
I work at the University of Minnesota, St. Paul campus as a Barley Breeding Scientist. I research and develop new varieties of barley to make a better beer! I love spending time with my family, fishing, college football, watching Doctor Who, gardening, fall colors and being a father to my five children. After eating organic and local foods for five years I have really learned the meaning of the phrase “You are what you eat.” I’ve never felt better in my whole life!
Carol Morgan- Treasurer
I am originally from Costa Rica, but have lived in Hastings the last 15 of my 21 years in Minnesota. My husband, Scott, works for the Sheriff's Office in Hastings, and we have two children: Mia (7) and Andrew (6). I got my Bachelor's Degree in Business Administration with a minor in Accounting at Augsburg College, and I am currently Sales Operations Manager at Avtex Solutions, a technology company. I recently earned my Health Coach Certification from the Institute of Integrative Nutrition.
Lynn Gannon- Secretary
I have been a member of Spiral since 2011 when I moved to Hastings. My reasons for supporting food co-ops include a strong belief in locally sourced, fresh, and healthy foods, and sustainable and organic/low impact farming practices. I work as a fraud investigator and have over 27 years of experience. One of my passions is training dogs to help people with disabilities.
Stacey Clark- Policy Monitoring Coordinator
During my years with the board, I have really enjoyed the experience of participating actively in the co-op, learning about what a Board does to enhance, support, and guide the co-op, and interacting with other Directors and members in a productive way.
Betty Schiefelbein- Administrative Assistant
I have been with the board since 2013. My husband and I have five children, ranging in age from 10 to 29. As a family, we are very committed to nutrient dense food, and enjoy raising some of it on our hobby farm. I am managing Editor for two international scientific journals. I love helping other people improve their health through lifestyle change and healthy food choices.
