Vicki Kopplin

A nonprofit leader with a career focused on epilepsy, including executive roles at the state and national level, Vicki had Gillette in her sights as a career move for many years. She’s excited to use her background and learn about Gillette’s specialties, so she can help providers understand when to get their patients to our experts. 

Vicki earned a Master of Arts degree at Hamline University with a concentration in non-profit management. She has an undergraduate business degree from the University of North Dakota. 

Reyna Staats 

With a deep understanding of business development in the financial marketplace, Reyna is on the path to learning more about pediatrics and the healthcare environment. She enjoys making connections and helping people in their decision-making process. 

Reyna graduated with a double major in Business Administration and Spanish Communications from the University of Wisconsin River Falls. She is fluent in written and spoken Spanish. 

Tara Swedberg

Transitioning from another role at Gillette focused on community engagement, Tara is a natural fit for a liaison role. For many years, she worked in the pharmaceutical and medical device field. She is also the mother of a Gillette patient. 

Tara graduated with a degree in Biology and Business minor from Gustavus Adolphus College.
