How long have you lived in Milwaukee and why did you choose to move here?
I moved to Milwaukee in 2005 for college. I went to UWM and enjoyed this great city so much, I haven’t had any desire to move away.

What about Milwaukee makes it a city you want to work, live and play in?
Accessibility. You can get to or from most parts of the city and outlying areas in less than 30 minutes. There’s great nightlife, day-life, festivals, sporting events and action in Milwaukee and it only takes a few minutes to go check things out.

What is your favorite Milwaukee event?
My favorite event is the quarterly Tuaca Gallery Night After Party at Whiskey Bar. It’s my fave partially because I helped create the event, but mostly because it’s a fun, unique event that incorporates live art, great music and delicious cocktails.

What is one thing you’d like to see change about Milwaukee?
Although there are great bars and restaurants to choose from in Milwaukee, I’d like to see more.  One of my favorite things to do is try new restaurants and foods, as well as deliciously crafted beverages.  The thing I’d like to see change about our city would be an increase in awesome places to go for dinner and/or cocktails.

What do you do?
I strive to be a great friend, daughter, coworker, employee, neighbor and citizen and I live each day being the best me I can possibly be… All while doing my part to increase consumer awareness of the Southern Comfort and Tuaca family of brands in Milwaukee. My job is to localize and implement national brand plans into our great city, to show Milwaukeeans how awesome life can be with a comfortable attitude and a tasty cocktail in hand.

    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."
