How long have you lived in Milwaukee and why did you choose to live here?
Seven years, moved to Milwaukee for school (UW-Milwaukee), fell in love with the city and never left

What about Milwaukee makes a place you want to live work and play in?
I love that Milwaukee is a hidden gem among the coolest of cities, a big (ish) city with a small town feel, I can’t help but love the 1.75 degrees of separation in Milwaukee that connect us all.

What is your favorite Milwaukee event?
Summer!! The fests, the lakefront, happy hours, running, outdoor patios….

What is one thing you’d like to see change about Milwaukee?
I would like to see more people give our fantastic city a chance before heading south. To have more people come to the realization of what an amazing place Milwaukee is and spread the gospel.

What do you do?
Marketing at Baird.
