Hej och välkommen!
A Seattle native, I spent much of my childhood summertime at my family’s cabin in Poulsbo. I have fond memories of smiley-face cookies from Sluy’s, ice cream sundaes at the Poulsbo Drug Store, and clam-digging along Hood Canal. After delving into my Scandinavian heritage at Gustavus Adolphus College, Mora Folkhögskola, and the UW, I married my husband Kyle, moved to Kona, Hawaii and had our daughter Annika in 2013. There wasn’t a lot of opportunity for my Swedish fluency and krumkake recipe in the islands, so we returned to the Pacific Northwest after 12 years and settled near family here in Poulsbo.
I have always loved Scandinavian design and lifestyle, so when the opportunity to open a Nordic shop on historic Front Street presented itself in 2017, my family was instantly on board. I am thrilled to be here, and I hope that Nordiska becomes a destination for locals and visitors alike. I look forward to seeing you! Ha det bra!
