About Joe

Joe Kovacs was born and raised in Minnesota with Minnesotan Values.  He grew up in White Bear Lake where he was a three sport athlete and very active in theater and choir.  Emily Kovacs, his wife, also went to White Bear Lake Area High School. 

Joe went to Bethel University his freshman year of college and then transferred to Minnesota State University Moorhead earning Bachelor's degree in education.  He spent his college career tutoring and working with low-income students and children in Fargo.  In addition, he was the Vice President of Circle K International, a volunteer based organization at MSUM.   

 Joe and Emily got married in the winter of 2012.  One of the first adventures they embarked on was becoming Resident Managers at the Ronald McDonald House of  the Red River Valley.  They lived at the house and connected with and positively impacted  the families staying there. During this time, Joe started an additional role as a teacher.

After a short teaching career, Joe found himself working as a training specialist for an educational software company called Infinite Campus.  Still involved with education, he now teaches educators and other school staff how to successfully utilize their student information system and provide the best education possible. 

Joe and Emily live in downtown west and love being apart of such an electric neighborhood.  They have always loved and felt drawn to the city. Minneapolis has provided many positive experiences and opportunities to Joe and he now feels it is time to give back.  He wants to help make Minneapolis the influential and thriving city he knows it can be.
