Jamie Swenson

Appointed by the Governor

Public member Jamie Swenson was originally appointed to the Outdoor Heritage Council by the Governor in 2017, and was reappointed by the Governor in 2021. Her current four year term ends January 2025.

Jamie was born and raised in rural Le Sueur in the Minnesota River Valley and has lived in the 507 area code for most of her life. She graduated from Saint Cloud State University with a degree in Community Development/Planning and Heritage Preservation. Ms. Swenson later attended Minnesota State University-Mankato and obtained a Master of Science degree in Environmental Science. Her career spans almost fifteen years focusing on natural resources and environmental management. She spent nearly ten years at a family-owned engineering and architecture firm as an environmental consultant working on government, industry, agriculture, energy, and conservation projects. She currently works in the non-metallic mining industry as the Director of Land Management working on land transactions, environmental compliance, and water, restoration and sustainability objectives throughout locations in North America. She has a keen knowledge of land and environmental regulations and conservation programs in Minnesota and an in-depth expertise of surface and groundwater, water use, industry, wetlands, prairie restoration, and outdoor recreation.

She is an avid waterfowler (with her lab), upland bird hunter (with her two Irish setters), shooting enthusiast, and all-round outdoors woman. She spends much of each summer out on the lakes fishing, canoeing, kayaking, and travels at every opportunity. She supports many state and national conservation organizations. Above all, she enjoys engaging and sharing outdoor experiences with others, fostering a land and outdoor ethic in youth, and working to conserve the remarkable natural resources we are fortunate to have in this state.
