Hansen brought a lot of strengths to the job, not the least of which was her passion for the arts.
"With Barbe we got this kind of leap forward in energy," Stoffel said. "We've also stabilized, and that's a good thing. Transition's always tough, but because she helped up put the right staff in place, everyone's clear about their responsibilities are, so when we look at Barbe leaving, it's not terribly traumatic."
Hansen said she'll be working for a company in the Twin Cities.
