Favorite thing about Northeast Wisconsin: I love the people. This is such a wonderful community. The people, the places, the schools, the community events – we’ve fallen in love and are so proud to call Northeast Wisconsin home. This is the perfect place to raise our family, and we feel so lucky to live here.
Favorite sports team: Indianapolis Colts, and of course, the Green Bay Packers.
Favorite movie: Steel Magnolias, and anything Disney (the kids usually pick our movies).
Something most people don't know about me: I grew up in a very small town, graduating high school with about 35 students.
Favorite vacation spot: Indiana (visiting home is vacation for us).
A cause I'm passionate about: I am so passionate about raising money and awareness for cancer prevention, research and treatment – specifically colon cancer. My father passed away from colon cancer in 2005. Since then, I’ve made it my mission to host various fundraisers, walks and runs, and do plenty of interviews about the topic. I’ve also been outspoken about getting colonoscopies – it’s never fun, but they save lives.
Best part of my job: I love meeting people. Everyone has a story and we are so lucky we get to tell those stories.
