Hello!

My name is Kalista Mangahas and I am excited to introduce myself as the new Office Manager for Students United! I can’t wait to meet and work with all of you.

A little about myself: I was born and raised in Fargo, ND, so I am fairly new to the Twin Cities area.

I graduated from Minnesota State University, Moorhead with a BA in Communication Studies.

During the end of my college career, I discovered my passion for helping others and realized that nonprofit work is the best fit for me. I am very honored that Students United chose me to join their team as they strive to help students find their voices and advocate for Minnesota students in the Minnesota State system. I admire the work that this organization has done and I can’t wait to see what’s in store for the future.

Other fun facts about me: I am a major movie buff and I may slip in obscure movie references from time to time. I enjoy learning new skills, so you may find me at community classes like beginning cooking, archery, or (my personal favorite) interpretive dance! I also love to hike.  If you know any great hiking trails in Minnesota, let me know.

Please feel free to stop by the office or shoot me an email to introduce yourself. I would love to meet you all!
