Our Facilitators

Joyce Tofte

Joyce Tofte (she/her/Mx.) is a transplant to the SW MN area. A military brat, she traveled all over the country most of her life which is the reason for her passion over diversity, equity and inclusion work. Joyce earned her bachelors in Biology and Psychology and her Masters in Industrial/Organization Psychology.  Joyce completed her Racial Justice Facilitator certification in 2023. Currently involved with multiple organizations in the region including Marshall's DEI Commission, Facilitating Racial Equity Collaborative (FREC), Southwest Minnesota PRIDE, and Minnesota Coalition Against Sexual Assault (MNCASA), Joyce is passionate about community power-building and is a co-founding member of The MORE Network. 

Julie Walker

Julie Walker (she/her/Mx.) has lived in the Midwest for nearly her entire life, and she's lived the Marshall area since 2013. After growing up in a small community, Julie earned her bachelor's in Business Management, a Master's in Communication Studies, and an MFA in Applied Communication. During this time, she became a collector of stories. It was through the these stories that the stuff Julie had always "known" became a little less clear. Some things she'd taken for granted needed to be revisited. Julie is a co-founding member of The MORE Network. She lives in Marshall with her family and her dog.
