’02 grad reflects on Moraine Park’s “atmosphere of growth”

Portrait of Loni Meiborg

While her degree is Graphic Communications, Loni Meiborg, who graduated in the Class of 2002, has worked in the marketing and advertising field for more than 15 years. Currently, she’s the Marketing Leader at 1st National Bank, where her top priorities include delivering information to clients, developing materials that aide in financial success, and cultivating an easy-to-use environment for the bank’s products and services.

Making things clear and concise to her clients is important to her.  She loves being able to make a positive impact on how 1st National Bank does business with clients.

Moraine Park helped Loni cultivate relationships with new and interesting people; skills she uses every day in her work.

“I enjoyed all the different demographics of people I met and worked with. Moraine Park afforded me the work/life balance I needed and has really shaped the way I live today,” Loni said, adding “The skills obtained at Moraine Park have proven invaluable in my life.”

Outside of Moraine Park, Loni is heavily involved in her community of Green Lake.  She’s on the school board and Economic Development Task Force and is involved in Young Professionals and Boys & Girls Club of the Tri-County area.

She believes in making the world a better place for her children and that the only way to do that is by affecting change. Loni considers herself a life-long learner and tries to glean information from every interaction of life. Because of this, she loves people! Her hobbies include cooking; boating; and watching her boys play baseball, basketball and football.

When asked if she has a favorite memory of her time at Moraine Park, Loni remembers her final days at Moraine Park fondly:

“As with many students, I grew close to my core group of friends who I had been with since the beginning of the program. We decided to celebrate our upcoming commencement by going to dinner. I just recall sitting there around the table with all of these “new” friends and enjoying life.  It was very symbolic of what Moraine Park provides–an atmosphere of growth, both in education and as a person.”
