You Should Know 
14 -
The Verona Press
- People You Should Know - July 24, 2014
 Not married, 4 siblings
Where do you live:
 Madison (near Verona) – Stone Meadows Neighborhood
 Groundskeeper/Assistant Tournament Director for Reddan Soccer Park and MAYSA (Madison Area Youth Soccer Association)
Occupation duties:
 Tournament and Leagues – Manage tournament HQ and staff, and scheduling MAYSA leagues. Reddan Park – Pretty much anything and everything: paint fields, landscaping, lawn mowing, maintain irrigation and machinery, and various construction projects like, re-shingling the picnic shelter, to building a fence, to demolish-ing the old awards terrace.
Most enjoyable part of your job:
 Being outside on a sunny day working on the fields when the breeze is just right.
Most challenging part:
 The weather – especially with the storms this year. We had a lot of debris from the torna-do that hit Verona. We found lots of rocks and shingles and even a hack saw in the new stadium.
How long have you lived in the area:
 15 years
What brought you to the area:
 School at UW Madison
How else are you active in the community:
 I love ani-mals so I’ve done volunteering for the Dane County Humane Society.
What do you like best about your communi-ty?:
 There is always some-thing going on in Madison. It’s really easy to be active and to get out and have something to do.
Favorite trip outside of Verona:
 One summer my family drove out to Colorado crammed into a van. We stopped at Mt. Rushmore and the Badlands and did a lot of outdoor stuff like mountain biking and swimming. It was fun, because it was really only big family trip we ever man-aged.
What are your hobbies and interests:
 Big surprise – I love soccer! I play as much as I can. A couple summers ago I was on 6 teams at the same time. I also love music. I’ve never bought an album digitally. I think I’m one of the few people left who still enjoy reading the liner notes and looking at album art. I also have the stub to every concert I’ve ever attended. It must be up to at least 50 by now.
 I recently rescued a German Shepard mix, but if we’re talking about humans, I have parents, siblings, and close extended family that live in the area. In fact, if you see someone dressed up in period clothing for Duck Soup Cinema at the Overture Centre, that’s probably a rela-tive of mine. Not all of them are open to embarrassing public displays (ahem, Dad), but most play along quite well.
 Teen Librarian at Verona Public Library and Instructor at Kehl School of Dance
Occupation duties:
 As a dance instructor, I spend a lot of time creating cho-reography, giving personal feedback to dancers, and los-ing my voice (talking to kids over loud music will do that to you). At the library, I’m in charge of teen collection man-agement and programming, as well as daycare outreach at local childcare facilities. Basically, in one day I may: buy books, fill 46 water bal-loons with diluted paint, help a parent find the best series for her nine-year-old son, make sushi, or practice telling painful preschool jokes in a strange voice—with puppets. So, if you see me at Miller’s with flour in my hair and paint on my face, please be kind!
Most enjoyable part of your job:
 At Kehl, I love see-ing my dancers grow week-by-week. The level of personal improvement each dancer achieves by the end of the year always amazes me! And at the library, I love the vari-ety of duties—from helping patrons, to providing a safe, fun space for teens. The best days involve puppet shows at story time!
Most challenging part:
 Sometimes I can get carried away . . . I have a lot of ambi-tious ideas but not a lot of time, so I have to cut back on my expectations. My cowork-ers also make it difficult for me to leave the building because they’re so encourag-ing and gracious!
How long have you lived in the area:
 I’m a Verona native, and I attended UW-Madison for my Bachelor’s and Master’s, so I’m quite a homebody. It’s actually a little nerve-wracking giving presentations at schools, as my former teachers are often watching (and mentally grad-ing, I know it!).
What do you like best about your community:
 I love all of the community support! Our residents and local busi-nesses care about the youth. The only way I can provide awesome opportunities for teens is through the support of people who live and thrive in Verona!
Favorite trip outside of Verona:
 I look forward to hiking and backpack-ing the mountains around Breckenridge, Colorado every summer.
What are your hobbies and interests:
 I enjoy embarrass-ing myself with family, hiking with my dog while listening to audiobooks, dancing (obvi-ously, although tap is my favorite), cooking, playing
