Meet Our Coaches

Hey everyone! I am Lindsey Jansen and I am from Loomis, CA, a suburb of Sacramento, but I'm super excited to be in Minnesota for the summer. I am an incoming sophomore at St. Olaf College (Go Oles!!!), and I am studying to get a double major in Mathematics and Spanish with a concentration in Management Studies. I'm excited to work with all these kids this summer because I love all the different personalities I get to interact with and the creativity each kid has. Coaching and mentoring has always been something I'm passionate about and BrainyAct allows for a unique and rewarding atmosphere to coach.

Sam Kroening

Hi, I am Sam Kroening, I am from Plymouth, Minnesota and am about to start my junior year at Saint Louis University where I am studying Psychology with a minor in Entrepreneurship and Service Leadership. The reason why I want to work at Kinuu this summer is that I want to make a difference in the lives of children with learning disabilities. I myself, have ADD and it is really rewarding to see kids, who are going through similar things that I did when I was their age, succeed and feel really good about themselves and the work they are doing.

This is my first time coaching for BrainyAct this summer. I'm so excited to work with kids this summer. I love working with kids and seeing them better themselves! Mentoring has always been a big part of my life and it is very rewarding seeing them improve and feel really good about themselves!
