Signe Ilstrup is passionate about reading, music (singing in choir), and travel. She is of Scandinavian descent on her dad's side of the family. When she was in college, the concert band took a tour to England and Norway. Signe thought it would be fun to learn some Norwegian before going, and it didn’t take long until she was hooked.
Signe enjoys volunteer travel and has participated in trips through Global Volunteers to destinations such as Tanzania, Archaeology digs in the American Southwest and England, and whale watching in Andenes, Norway. A fun fact about Signe is that she is one of MNLCP’s original instructors who followed the program as it traveled from Sons of Norway in Uptown, to Augsburg College and eventually ending up at Mindekirken.
