Naturalist, Designer & Illustrator
Emily had worked as a naturalist for several years at local parks and nature preschools before joining the Vacker team. Her focus has always been on combining art and nature education in an engaging and fun way. Outside of work, she enjoys drawing and painting, biking, and reveling in good stories.
Naturalist & Designer
Dina is an environmental educator and naturalist. In addition to taking kids rafting down the Mississippi River, teaching how to start a fire with flint and steel, and getting people up close and personal with some of Minnesota’s iconic animal ambassadors, Dina developed a talent for educating through graphic design. When not educating, or designing, she and her family can be found frolicking around their regenerative farm.
Packing, Shipping & Installation
Bill has served as the packing, shipping and installation coordinator since Vacker’s founding. He too enjoys hiking and biking.
CPRP | Founder, Designer & Project Manager
After serving more than 20 years as a Park and Recreation Director, Carol founded Vacker Sign in 1999. This venture provided the opportunity to remain connected to the parks and recreation industry while utilizing her graphic design skills and passion for the outdoors and interpretation. Carol’s sense of design was fostered by her dad, a life-long graphic artist/art director, from early childhood and beyond. In her free time, Carol spends time hiking and biking the trails in the great outdoors of Minnesota.
