Sam Bauman



Sam has a masters degree in counseling psychology, a field she worked in for several years before applying her skills in business. She’s a dabbler in many hobbies and loves trying new things, which helps her relate to a diverse range of people and situations. Her warmth, dependability, and ability to communicate effectively no matter the situation are felt by all those around her. When not working, you can find her spending time with family, baking or playing her guitar.

Adam has an aptitude for harnessing the power of technology but his background in sociology reflects his true passion – connecting people. He’s able to understand people’s pain-points and automate manual work, freeing up their time and improving their experience. His creativity continually reveals itself as he finds clever ways to inject fun and humor into his work. After work, he’s usually building custom apps to facilitate his friends’ hobbies, playing board games, or listening to his vinyl record collection.

Andy is a self-taught artist with a passion for visual communication and storytelling. He loves finding new ways to capture a brand’s authentic voice and create memorable customer experiences. He has a keen attention to detail, which can be seen in the printmaking business he operates in his free time. In the winter you might find him on the ice playing hockey, though during the rest of the year he’s likely to be exploring the Minnesota wilderness in search of rocks and fossils.

You probably know what that’s like.

Our expertise doesn’t just come from our experience helping businesses. It comes from solving problems and drawing lessons from every area of our lives.

Running a business often means working long hours and doing whatever it takes. Growing a business means crafting a vision, developing strategic objectives, and investing in the future.

It’s easy to get stuck in the first stage, overwhelmed by the day-to-day, unable to find time for organizing or planning ahead. We know what that’s like. That’s where most of our clients start. They’ve spent time and money and tried band-aid solutions that didn’t actually address the root problems.

But with our help, they got unstuck. And unstuck many times over again. Eventually, they started getting stuck a little less often. So what’s our magic answer? We stick to our values.

    Why We’re Called Mellowlark Labs


    [‘ˈmelō] adjective

    Pleasantly smooth and free from harshness, well matured by experience, rich and fertile.

    A Mellowlark is curious and high-flying, able to get a bird’s-eye-view of your business and the path ahead, but also humble and down-to-earth.

    We’re playful, social creatures who are excited to discover and learn.

    Larks take small steps, but that’s what it takes to realize big dreams.
