About Mindy Dahlquist
Mindy Dahlquist is the Business Development manager for TRA snow and sun. Mindy was raised in rural Ohio, with an education focused on agriculture and local trades. As an account manager for a commercial snow removal company in Utah and Colorado, she gained her respect for the heavy snow in mountainous regions. Here she learned the dangers and work involved when heavy snow falls and accumulates. Rooftop snow removal and snow shed on parking lots and walkways seemed like something you just had to deal with. Joining TRA she was given the tools to see there’s always more than one solution to a problem, and rooftop snow retention is the safest solution to heavy snow accumulation.
