Director of Human Resources

Sandra J. Ricci

My Approach

In 2003 I joined Winthrop & Weinstine, P.A. as Director of Human Resources.  I brought to the firm extensive human relations and professional service administration experience, having spent nearly fifteen years as a human resources professional with a Minneapolis-based law firm prior to joining Winthrop & Weinstine.

At Winthrop & Weinstine I am responsible for compensation and benefits; policy development and administration; employee relations; performance management; including staffing, training and development; and recruiting.  I am a long-standing member of the Minnesota Legal Administrators Association, and served as President of the Association from 1993 to 1994.

Outside of the office, I enjoy singing in my church choir, and attending local theater productions.  My husband and I are also kept quite busy tending to our Golden Retriever, the youngest member of our family.  Italy is our favorite vacation destination, and we work at visiting there as often as possible.
