About Landsverk and Associates, Inc.

I founded Landsverk and Associates, Inc. in 2005 and haven’t looked back since. I office out of my home near Fosston, MN, and am very thankful for technology which keeps me connected with my clients whether I’m on the road or behind my desk. Although the name of my company includes the word “associates,” I am the sole employee of my company. Occasionally, if a project needs it, I may bring in outside technical or subject matter experts. They are the “Associates” of Landsverk and Associates, Inc.

The success of my clients is the focus of everything I do. Whether I am working on a grant proposal or a strategic plan, I strive to bring my best to every project and client. Over the years, I have worked with a broad range of organizations and projects.

I most often find myself working with groups of people–boards, committees, and taskforces. The best results are always derived when I work with people who are engaged, informed, and feel respected by their peers, along with taking ownership of the end product. For that reason, I strive to build connection between people and bring out the best in the teams I work with.

Core Values: the Passion Behind What I Do

I love small towns and rural life. My vision is a thriving economy which provides opportunity for people to live and work in small towns and rural areas. I find great pleasure in helping small businesses and communities achieve their goals.  I believe that rural America is – and should always be – one of the best places on earth to pursue one’s dreams. I value people, resources, and true communication – the kind that enables people to hear and to be heard.


Work Worth Doing

Far and away the best prize that life offers is the chance to work hard at work worth doing.”  Theodore Roosevelt

 I find great satisfaction in “work worth doing.” In my consulting practice, I strive to develop deep and lasting relationships with my clients, helping them to achieve the objectives that are important to them.
