How long have you lived in Milwaukee and why did you choose to live here?
I moved to Milwaukee in 2008 for a career job in sales.

What about Milwaukee makes it a place you want to work and play?
I really enjoy that there is a lot to do in Milwaukee with its festivals, numerous lakes to go boating on and it has a great social atmosphere.  I believe the networking in Milwaukee is very beneficial; everyone seems to know someone in something.

What is your favorite Milwaukee event?
The Air Show is by far my favorite event in Milwaukee! Watching the show from a boat tie up is an amazing experience!

What is one thing about Milwaukee you’d like to see change?
More convenient parking downtown, especially overnight parking.  Parking tickets are too easy to come by when you’re downtown no matter what time of day or night.

What do you do?
I am the owner/trainer of the Transformation Room Specialty Fitness Facility.

The Transformation Room offers specialty fitness classes focusing on Total Body Toning.  Training is held in small personalized group classes or in one-on-one personal training or couples/buddy training. These premium classes are for people who want to tighten and tone their body and take their fitness to the next level.

    I have struggled over the years to stay in Milwaukee. With the line of work I am in (youth and community work, running a nonprofit) there are many times I feel hopeless and overwhelmed with the issues we face; unemployment, lack of opportunities for youth, #1 segregated/institutionalized racism, and wanting to explore other opportunities but at the end of the day, this is my home and Milwaukee needs invested individuals to stay here to work through the issues we face.

    Kickstart my heart to Harley Davidson Fest... Seeing all of Milwaukee turn into a sea of leather fringe and bedazzled back pocket jeans warms any fashion girl’s heart.

    "The best bonus of Harley Fest is being sung to sleep by thousands of motorcycles revving their engines throughout the streets of good ol’ Miltown."

    Without a doubt, some big investors are betting on Milwaukee's future, and as a resident of this city, I naturally think they're very wise to do so and would encourage more to follow suit. This sort of growth can have very positive effects on our community, so long as we’re planning in a way that enhances the city as a whole.

    I have lived in Milwaukee for nearly a decade. Since the first time I visited the city with my parents for a Brewers game at County Stadium, I felt a connection to the urban setting. I always felt at some point Milwaukee would be my home.

    “More convenient parking”? Is she from Mars? I’m really amazed at people who complain about parking in Milwaukee. Whenever I take out of town friends downtown they almost all say “my god! there’s nothing but parking garages here!”

  2. Dave Reid says:

    @Tyrell Yup agreed.. We have more than our share of parking.

  3. Farzad says:

    not at the lakefront there is not..especially for big events like the one she refers to.

  4. Jesse H. says:

    There is plenty of parking, especially during the largest events of the year. You just can’t be a cheapskate & expect it for free.
