A little bit about me
I have been a
I am employed in the transportation field, have been for almost 25 years. I did spend about 3 years traveling the country as a field operations manager. I helped stations with training of employees as well as help managers identify and solve their operational problems. I enjoyed this job very much, but I wanted to watch my kids grow up. The employer always let me be home for the concerts, plays etc, but I never realized how much I missed of the every day stuff. I have spent considerable time around many different airports.
I am active with the Cudahy/St Francis Little Baseball Association. I asked them if they would be willing to start a Challenger Division for kids with special needs. I continue to run it every Saturday morning during the season. It started about 3 years ago with about 8 kids. This year we had over 20. I also help coach my daughter’s softball team and my youngest son’s baseball team.
I am a past Board President with the Down Syndrome Association of Wisconsin as well as Treasurer.
I currently serve on the Wisconsin Board for People with Developmental Disabilities.
