Swenson said, “Device Pitstop – Maple Grove is a friendly, neighborhood center for affordable computers, tablets, smartphones, accessories, repairs and upgrades.” She grew-up in the franchised store business and knows technology as a powerful and widespread tool, both for her own uses and her three school-aged children who live in the computer and mobile-device worlds. Her dad, Ron Olson, and brother, Chad Olson, created many national franchise chains including Device Pitstop. Swenson was born and raised in the Twin Cities and graduated from the College of St. Catherine. She lives in Medina and supports her children’s Cub Scouts and Boy Scouts (serving as Cubmaster last year) and their PTAs.
