As a third generation Oakdalian, Louise has always had a passion for the city she's planted her roots in. Growing up she was taught early about that importance of being active within the community. Her grandfather was the Chief of Police, her uncle was Assistant Postmaster and her great-uncle once served as Fire Chief. Louise has continued on with her family’s dedication to community service. When she isn’t serving as a director on the hospital board, she is committing most of her free time to volunteering for various causes within the community.
