Meet Mark Lindborg – President of the Board.
Mark grew up in a small Indiana town and went to college at Indiana University in Bloomington and then went on to veterinary school at Purdue University.
Mark came to Hartford in 1982, having just graduated from veterinary school, and joined Hartford Animal Clinic as the second veterinarian. At that time Hartford Animal Clinic provided care to local beef and dairy farms, horses and pets. The entire staff consisted of 2 doctors and one receptionist/assistant.
He became a partner in the practice in 1983 and then sole owner in 1988. Since that time the practice has become limited to caring for pets with 5 veterinarians and 12 supporting staff members.
Mark met his wife, Laurie, here in Wisconsin and they were married in 1988. They have one daughter, Analise, who is currently a senior at UW Madison.
He learned the importance of community involvement from his father who instilled in him the that it is not what you get in life but rather what you give back. Mark has been an active member in various roles in the Hartford Area including the Jack Russell Library Campaign, the Veterans Memorial Pool project, the Schauer Arts and Activities Center , the Schauer Foundation and is on the board of directors of the First National Bank of Hartford. He is also involved in the Wisconsin State Veterinary Association.
Mark joined the Hartford Area Foundation board of directors in 2007 and became president in 2015.
Laurie is a civil engineer and is CEO of Natural Resource Technologies, an Environmental engineering firm, in Milwaukee. Mark and Laurie live south of Hartford on a small farm with 2 horses, 3 cats and a dog. They enjoy cross country skiing, horseback trail riding, traveling and music together.
Mark is honored to be able to be a part of the Hartford Area Foundation and to serve the community that has become his home.
