What would you say are the best things about living and working in Dane County?
Our family really takes advantage of the wonderful hiking and biking trails found in and around Madison. We also enjoy road trips with the camper to explore the state park systems and take in the quiet surroundings with no distractions. In keeping with a healthy lifestyle, finding organic food at a reasonable cost is easy to do in Dane County with all of the wonderful farmer’s markets that can be found locally.
We also feel privileged to live in a community that feels so passionately about giving back to others. We are happy to partner with and support Second Harvest Food Bank, Domestic Abuse Intervention Services, and the American Family Children’s Hospital, as well as our own charitable program, Saving Faces. Saving Faces was created to help survivors of domestic abuse and other traumatic events by minimizing physical scars that may remind them of an unpleasant situation in their past. We are so fortunate to help change the way they see themselves after the treatment.
Do you have any secret talents or abilities that people would be surprised to discover?
I just succeeded in my lifelong dream to become a pilot! Both of my parents are pilots, so for years I have wanted to complete my license, and I am so incredibly excited to have accomplished that goal. Our family is looking forward to doing some flying together; my daughter has found a new hobby of climbing mountains, and so I am looking forward to flying her to different locations around the country to explore new and exciting adventures!
What are your guilty pleasures?
I really love to cook with the organic foods that I get from local sources, and I appreciate having the time to prepare a wholesome meal for my family. On a cold wintery day, we love to sit in front of a fire while binge-watching the latest series on Netflix!
