Max Winebrenner-Palo

As IT and Operations Manager, Max provides behind-the-scenes operations support for all TakeAction organizing, campaigns, and programs. Their work supports all things IT, resources for work in the community, and office management for our St Paul, Duluth, and St Cloud locations. If you visit TakeAction in St Paul, Max is often the person welcoming you to the space!

Max completed a BA in Religious Studies at Hamline University in 2011 and a Masters in Theological Studies at Harvard Divinity School in 2013. They have deep roots in the interfaith and faith-based nonprofit world, including admin and office management roles with Interfaith Youth Leadership Coalition in Chicago, The Pluralism Project in Boston, and Luther Seminary in St Paul. Transitioning into the creative agency and corporate world, Max added additional skill areas in logistics and IT project management; their most recent role was in IT project management in the tabletop games industry.

Max made the leap back into the nonprofit world by joining TakeAction in 2021 and is thrilled to reconvene with their ethics!
