Candidate Information

Candidate Biography

(Edited from the candidate’s website for brevity) I was raised in Saratoga Wisconsin where I spent summer breaks playing with my brothers and neighborhood friends in the 10-mile creek just a short jaunt through the backwoods. My family enjoyed camping and we often spent a great deal of time on the banks of the Wisconsin River boating and skiing. I attended and graduated school in the nearby Nekoosa School District, later moving on to attend UW Oshkosh and UW Steven Point to earn my teaching degree in Special Education and eventually my Master’s Degree from St Mary’s University. I worked as an educator for over 15 years, leaving the profession in 2015. During the early years of my career, I met my future husband and started a family. Our search for the perfect home to raise our children brought us back to the town of Saratoga and ironically back to the same banks of the 10-mile creek. It was a dream come true to find a home that would allow my children to have the same fun and adventures on the banks of the creek as I did as a kid. While the kids were young I was the typical “Team Mom” for a variety of sports teams. I believe in giving back to the community and volunteered my time as a girl scout leader, board member for a local youth tackle football organization, I have served on the leadership team for a variety of clean water and environmental community groups and now also open my home to foster animals from the South Wood County Humane Society. Life is never dull around here!
