Laura Qualey

Laura joined CEDA in April 2020 as an Economic & Business Specialist for the city of Cannon Falls. Laura has a background in sales, marketing, management and digital and social marketing. She has been an advocate for Cannon Falls over her over 30 years of living in the community and volunteers on many different organizations. In her spare time, she offers her skill set to local merchants to keep them relevant by increasing their online presence in today’s digital world, while still maintaining a brick and mortar business. Laura’s most recent line of work was the Director of Marketing for a Minnesota based community bank that had 16 locations across the state. She has been a board member for the Cannon Falls Education Foundation for almost 15 years and has been the PR Chair for a majority of her time on the board. Laura is also on the Steering Committee for the Blandin Broadband Community Grant for Cannon Falls the past couple of years and is the main lead on implementing the programs and projects in the community.

Laura is originally from North Dakota (Go Bison!) and grew up with entrepreneurs for parents. She got the retail bug early and when her family moved to Minnesota, she continued to work for her father’s business and learned the value of supporting local merchants. She has daughter, Mattie, a grand-daughter, Ella, as well as two step-daughters, Kaitlyn and Cortney and two step-grandchildren, Evelyn and Gus.
