A city lover who's created a high intensity performance program for "fierce women."
How long have you lived in Milwaukee and why did you choose to move here?
I was born and raised in Milwaukee. I left for 2 years to attend college in La Crosse, WI but quickly transfered back to Marquette because I missed the city so much. Milwaukee will always be home to me, I love it here.
What about Milwaukee makes it a place you want to work and play?
There is something for everyone here. The city is the perfect size with endless opportunities. It is not so big that it is overwhelming or unwelcoming. Milwaukee does not swallow you up, it invites you in.
What is your favorite Milwaukee event?
Now that it has become a recurrent annual event, the Newaukee New Year’s Eve party is on the top of my list.
What is one thing you’d like to see change about Milwaukee?
I would love to have the perception of the city continue to evolve. It has already begun, but I would like people from around the country to know and recognize the city for its charm, activities, and amazing people.
What do you do?
I am a board-certified physician assistant working in cardiology at one of the leading heart hospitals in the country. I have my master’s degree from Marquette University. I am also the founder and director of Femme Féroce Performance, LLC. The mission of this company is to promote high level entertainment and the performing arts in the greater Milwaukee area. Femme Féroce (which translates to “fierce woman” in French) offers a high intensity performance program to successful women with full time careers that want to continue pursuing their dream of being able to dance and perform without having to sacrifice their professional lives.
