Marilyn Galloway

Community Relations Coordinator

Phone: 952-913-7288

Marilyn joined PrairieCare in 2016 and is delighted to work for the only stand-alone children’s mental health hospital in Minnesota!  Marilyn has previous experience working in the utility industry as a resource planner for 20 years before changing careers due to her burgeoning family.   She felt called to work in mental health and addiction care  and started doing so in 2004.  Her experience includes 12 years of managing the office for mental health and addiction in a large inner city tertiary hospital that had an indigent population serving the homeless population as well as those living with dual diagnosis of mental illness and addictions.   Seeing and working with this population daily has connected her to her purpose which is connecting professionals to care for those who struggle daily from mental and chemical illnesses.  Her hospital background and comfort level in the ER enriches her work as a liaison between PrairieCare and other hospital systems in Minnesota.  Volunteerism is a priority for Marilyn and her family who enjoy doing walks/runs to honor and support others.  Her favorite free time activities include yoga, reading, cooking for &  spending time with her husband, 4 children, and son-in-law.
