Meet Our Newest Intern: We are excited to introduce our newest intern, Lacey Reimnitz. She is currently a master’s equivalency student in music therapy at the University of Minnesota. She received her Bachelor’s degree in Music, Human Services, and Criminal Justice from Dakota Wesleyan University in Mitchell, SD. Her primary instrument is piano, but she has plenty of experience on guitar as well! She started with us the last week in May and has already met quite a few members of the Toneworks family. We can’t wait for you to meet her, too!
