Published on April 8, 2021

Public Health Communications Specialist Colleen Hermann-Franzen has been with the City for just over a year. She started just a few weeks before the pandemic arrived in Minnesota.

  • Outside of work, she enjoys gardening, biking to nearby lakes and parks and spending time with family and friends. A favorite place to walk is Wood Lake Nature Center in Richfield. 
  • While living in Portland, she once served as an extra on an episode of Portlandia. “While I didn’t make the final cut, I did get to meet Fred Armisen and Carrie Brownstein, which was pretty cool.”
  • Describes herself as a “PBS nerd” who loves the shows Call the Midwife, Finding Your Roots and Antiques Roadshow.
