MnCCC Spotlight: Jen Pim
What was your first job?
Unofficially, I babysat for neighborhood kids. My first taxable job was as a waitress at the Beef Hut food building during the Minnesota State Fair when I was 12 or 13. My first ‘grown-up’ job was as the Assistant Winona City Attorney.
Tell us a little bit about yourself:
I’m a Taurus who went to an environmental law school only to find myself in the field of criminal law. I’ve since transitioned over to civil government law, but I still turn the lights out on people to save energy. I have been married for 10 years and have 2 adult step-sons and 2 elementary-aged sons. I made sure we got a girl dog when the time came so I felt less overwhelmed by boys.
What interests you about MnCCC?
I appreciate the collaborative work that numerous departments and counties can engage in through MnCCC. They provide a solid foundation for the User Groups to build from and creatively expand upon. The staff are receptive to ideas and exude a positive attitude.
What is your role with Sherburne county?
I have been an Assistant Sherburne County Attorney for almost 14 years. I began in criminal prosecution and have shifted to a hybrid criminal-civil/civil case load. I handle cases involving property forfeiture, vulnerable adults, collections, firearm eligibility, probate, medical assistance, trusts, Health and Human Service appeals, licensing, bankruptcy, etcetera; and I provide backup for child protection, civil commitments, and child support among other fields.
What is something on your bucket list?
I want to visit the United Kingdom with my husband, and maybe our kids. I’m not a big fan of flying so getting there will take some resolve (and probably some Dramamine).Tags: Vendor Search(1)
