Linda Trummer has a successful record of connecting with a diverse community, implementing programs to meet specific needs of youth and families, and maintaining the integrity of the Meadowbrook Collaborative in its mission to meet the needs of the Meadowbrook community in the areas of health, education and safety. She has been with the project since its inception in 1993 and continues to be the sole full-time staff person of a project that serves a community of approximately 1,200 people.
During her tenure crime has dramatically decreased, school attendance and parental involvement are notably improved, and families and youth have greater access to resources and opportunities for success.

Most recently, Linda provided leadership for the 2014 St. Louis Park Community Link event, and has spoken to groups on suburban poverty. Linda is a published writer on community, and is currently president of the St. Louis Park Sunrise Rotary Club.
Currently Linda Trummer is on an extended medical leave. Thanks to the Park Nicollet foundation, the City of St. Louis Park and the St. Louis Park School District for hiring an Interim Coordinator in Linda’s absence so that the great work with kids and families can go on.
Debbie Wells is acting as Interim Coordinator while Linda is on medical leave. Debbie has most recently retired as an elementary principal in Waukesha, WI and is thrilled to be returning to St. Louis Park where she worked for several years in the 1990s. Stop in and meet her at the Collaborative office. Look for a little silver car with WI license plates parked right in front.
