Andrea Novak Neumann
Andrea Novak Neumann is a proud Croatian, dedicated volunteer and devoted mother from Minneapolis, Minnesota. When not working as an IT Manager for Merrill Corporation, Andrea devotes much of her time to preserving and promoting Croatian culture and heritage. She is president of the Croatian Cultural Society of Minnesota, an executive board member for the National Federation of Croatian Americans Cultural Foundation and a board member and former officer for the University of Minnesota Immigration History Research Center. She has taken the Croatian Cultural Society into the digital age with online newsletters, Twitter feeds and other social media engagement. Her life-long volunteerism is motivated in part by the hard work of her father with many of these organizations and she carries on her family’s legacy by instilling the same pride and dedication in her three teenage children, who join her in volunteering at many cultural events.
