Danelle Erickson
BECHS Operations Manager @blueearthcountyhistory.com
From a very young age, Danelle has had an unwavering curiosity and interest in history, reading as much historical fiction as she could get her hands on growing up. She has always been absolutely fascinated by the stories that every single person has about their own unique family history and how these stories connect the individuals of the communities in which we live, which led her to studying History in college. After launching her professional career as a business owner, Danelle later pursued an opportunity at the Blue Earth County Historical Society and has grown her career at this organization ever since, now fulfilling the role of Operations Manager.
