Grace Pesch considers herself a Rochester native, having been born in Iowa (keep your negativity to yourself), but raised in Rochester since the age of 4. After attending Winona State for her Bachelors of Science in Public Health, she knew she wanted to come back home and give back to the community that raised her. By day she works at the United Way of Olmsted County where she fights for the health, education, and financial stability for everyone in our community. By night you’ll find her volunteering at various locations that support the development of youth and young professionals. Her favorite pastimes include walks around the East Side Pioneers neighborhood, biking, exploring nature, reading, writing, and watching documentaries. Surprisingly, Grace is not an elderly woman, despite her favorite activities.
