Jennifer Bierma

The Holistic Chamber of Minnesota (HCMN) has announced that Jennifer N. Bierma will replace Laura Strong as the organization’s president. Strong, who founded HCMN, has been serving as president since it launched in 2014.

“I am thrilled that Jennifer has stepped forward as our new President.  In addition to her thriving holistic business, Jennifer has extensive experience with member-based organizations and the expertise to grow the Chamber and our collective opportunities to new levels of excellence.  I look forward to watching our community continue to expand in new directions under her leadership," said Strong.

Bierma, founder and owner of No Knots Professional Massage & Bodywork, Inc., in St. Paul Park, is a certified massage therapist, intuitive healer, advance reiki practitioner and a certified angel card reader. She has served in leadership roles with the Cottage Grove Area Chamber of Commerce, Lions Clubs International, the Park-Port Lioness Club, Stone Soup Thrift Shop, Business Network International, and the Lions Multiple District 5M Hearing Foundation and is a member of the Women of Words writers’ organization and charter member of the New-Park Lions Club.

“Our community of holistic practitioners has been so blessed to have Laura in this role for the past four years. Her efforts and hard work have gifted many of us opportunities to grow that we may not have had otherwise,” Bierma shares. “I wish I could fully express how grateful and honored I am to have the opportunity to know her and to follow her in this role. I am beyond excited to see where this journey takes both of us and am even more excited to work to expand the chamber so that we can connect and help more people through this amazing organization."
