Salleen Hoehn

Board Member

Greetings! My name is Sally Hoehn, and I am delighted to be directly involved with Leo's Legacy. Leo was an organ donor and my son while he was here on Earth for 22 years. I currently live in Waseca, MN and I work as an RN for Allina at the Owatonna Hospital in Owatonna, MN. I have three daughters, Sammie, Andee, and Jacie and twin sons John and Simon. I am a proud Grandma to my five grandchildren, ages 2 to 11, who also live in Waseca. In my spare time I am an accompanist at my church for a children's choir and have been involved with the music ministry in my parish since I was a first grader! In addition, I love to cook, bake, camp, fish, attend Broadway musicals, listen to music, and spend time with my family. I am looking forward to this exciting venture of providing hope to those in need of an organ transplant, while sharing my family's personal experience of Leo's organ donation.

I graduated from South Dakota State University with a bachelor's degree in Clinical Laboratory Science and later obtained my MBA from the University of St. Thomas, Minneapolis, MN. I met the Hoehn family when we moved to Waseca, MN where I began an 18-year career with Mayo Clinic Health System. Leo's brother's, John and Simon, were like my own kids, growing up along side our twins, Noah and Sadie. Our families have remained in close contact even since our move to South Dakota. I am currently the System Executive Director for Sanford Laboratories at their corporate headquarters in Sioux Falls, SD. I am excited that Leo's Legacy is taking on a new life through this non-profit!
