I’m the Executive Director of Achieve Brown County, a cradle-to-career partnership designed to support children and their families at every stage of development. I have a background leading successful multi-partner collaborations in the Greater Green Bay community, such as the Community Information System, which leverages data from local health, safety and education organizations to better understand best practice in serving our youth. I’ve served on the steering team for the Brown County Life Quality Project; sat on both the local and regional steering teams for the Leading Indicators for Excellence (LIFE) Study and, in partnership with the Green Bay Packers, led the first Text-To-Give effort in the NFL.
I loved music and dancing as a child. It’s hard to pin down my first memory – I have so many – but my parents always say the first song I’d dance to was Mockingbird by Carly Simon. Apparently every time the song came on I’d start wiggling in my diaper.
There are so many amazing dancers it’s hard to pick a dream partner. Martha Graham, Ginger Rogers and… Peta Murgatroyd?
I’m passionate about serving our community, which is why the effort of Achieve Brown County is really a dream job. I also enjoy reading, playing music (guitar mostly, occasional percussion), riding both road and mountain bikes, running and, most of all, playing with my kids: Emma (5) and James (8).
The Red Cross provides critical programming that helps people when they need help the most – during times of crisis. It’s an honor to participate in DWOS and to support such a worthwhile organization.
