Boyum-Breen received her B.A. from Augsburg College in Minneapolis, MN in 1997 and her MS in Leadership from Capella University in 2016. She spent five years in the education field, coaching college and high school basketball and tennis.  Boyum-Breen then worked with the Minnesota Timberwolves and Lynx organization.

Before writing the Shelly Bean series, Boyum-Breen was the Founder of Foundation IX and the Let Me Play grants supporting Minnesota girls’ participation in sports and fitness.  “All kids, and especially girls need to be able to see what is possible for them.  If she can see it, she can be it. It is an honor to work for girls in sports; and to continue the work that many have done long before me.” And don't forget to check out her new YouTube series "30 Days of Play" where she teaches kids new sports with the help of expert coaches and local children!

We are a vibrant group of professional women
who are interested in contemporary Norwegian
issues and all things Norwegian. 


The Lakselaget Scholarship and Opportunity
Fund was established to celebrate, encourage
and advance the organization's motto,
women who swim against the current. 


Lakselaget holds monthly luncheons where
members gather to network, share news, and
take part in a traditional Norwegian meal
of salmon, potatoes and cucumber salad.
