Brianna Bischof

The Otter Tail County Extension offices would like to introduce their new administrative specialist, Brianna Bischof. She will provide support and collaboration with the Extension Educator team and, in partnership with the University of Minnesota Extension, connect community residents in East and West Otter Tail County.

“We are delighted to have Brianna join us, and hope that everyone stops in to meet her in person,” said Otter Tail County Deputy Administrator Lynne Penke Valdes.

Bischof grew up in Maple Grove, Minn., and she holds a bachelor’s degree in marketing communications from Bemidji State University. She has previously worked in Division II College athletics at Central Washington University and Lake Region Healthcare in Fergus Falls. She lives with her husband and two children on a hobby farm near Fergus Falls.

“I’m excited for this opportunity to work for Extension and support the educators and all of the programs they offer,” shared Bischof. “My husband was actively involved in 4-H growing up, so I look forward to supporting youth development and becoming a part of the 4-H community myself.”

For more information about Extension programs, please contact Bischof at or (218) 998-8761. She will work out of the Fergus Falls Extension Office at 505 South Court Street and one day a week in the New York Mills Office.
