After a successful career as principal of her own design firm in the Twin Cities area and senior art director at a Minneapolis ad agency, Christine Mangold (BA 1973 Applied Art – Advertising Design) has established “an ‘encore’ career that has provided the most satisfaction of all my lifetime creative endeavors,” she says.
As the lifelong learning program director for Ebenezer Senior Living sites, Mangold creates programs that help residents learn more about themselves, others and the world around them. Her concept of bringing virtual reality experiences to residents has resulted in the 2018 Innovation Award from Leading Age Minnesota, the largest association of organizations serving Minnesota seniors. “Its success as a pilot program and now as an ongoing experience (Virtual Travel Club) is expanding seniors’ lives in a way that we could never have imagined,” Mangold says.
“My ISU education and life experiences have provided me with the skills to continue a life of creative thinking.”
