Dean Kephart

I spend most of my time thinking about where we need to be headed next as well as how to strategically assist with outreach and development. As a student of human-centered design, this forward thinking is exactly what strikes in the center of my passion. Using empathy and compassion with our potential future service recipients is so exciting for me and never seems like work. I have been with ServeMinnesota since 2016, but have been a funder and supporter of this work for several years in my role at Target. I see service as my responsibility as being part of a community. My favorite service moment was witnessing one of my adult ESL students I was tutoring, master English and secure her first job here in America.
