What do you do when you are not working?
Read, study for my MBA course and try to stay physically active

“You never really understand a person until you consider things from his point of view … until you climb into of his skin and walk around in it.” – from “To Kill a Mockingbird” by Harper Lee
Any grilled/seared seafood with grilled vegetables
Best time of day for you:
Morning, after coffee
Favorite song on your playlist:
Our family “patio” playlist is setting the mood for summer … and “Sailing” by Christopher Cross or “Island in the Sun” by Weezer would rank up there.
What book is on your bedside table?
Currently there are two. “Man’s Search for Meaning” by Viktor Frankl (profound read!) is at bat and “Leaders Eat Last” by Simon Sinek is on deck.
What nonprofits are you involved with and why?
Helping others is a big aspect of my life purpose! To support community neighbors in need, I’ve volunteered for and contributed to the United Way for several years and recently started volunteering at the Feeding America food bank. I’ve previously served in Board roles in local chambers of commerce, economic development committees, my children’s school system and our family church. This fall, I’m excited to join an advisory committee for the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay Graduate School to mentor next generation leaders.
