Congratulations to Paula Mueske! Paula and her husband Rick live in Cottage Grove
with their teenage daughter, Amanda, and have lived here for 20 years. She also has
a 30-year-old stepson, Chris. After graduating from Plainview High School, she received
a Commercial Art degree from WWTI in Lacrosse, WI. She worked many years at Hal Leonard
Publishing in Winona, MN, in the Composition Department. She attended the University
of Minnesota and later the Minnesota School of Business where she obtained a court-reporting
degree. She has worked as a legal administrative assistant at the Dakota County Attorney’s
Office in West St. Paul for the past 16 years. Paula is a member of All Saints Lutheran
Church. She enjoys watercolor painting, music – especially the blues, reading, camping,
fishing, traveling, cooking/baking, yoga, and hanging out with family and friends.
She entered the logo contest because she thought it would be a fun challenge. She
chose the sweet deal/card theme because she has loved to play cards since she was
a kid and wanted to incorporate strawberries into that theme.
