Bio

I was born and raised in Wausau and studied Forest Management at UW-Stevens Point. In my free time, I enjoy camping, kayaking, snowshoeing, dog training, bow hunting, and trout fishing. I always knew I wanted to work outdoors and growing up, I had an appreciation for forests and now understand first-hand the wide array of services a healthy forest provides.

What I like about Marathon County: The people and setting are both wonderful. I appreciate our rural landscape and public lands that are available for all recreational opportunities for all ages!

Bio

I grew up in Southeastern Wisconsin in Racine along Lake Michigan. I went on to study Forest Science at UW-Madison and have been a professional forester since 1988. In my free time, I enjoy traveling far and wide, camping, kayaking, biking, woodturning but most of all, spending time with my three adult sons. At a very early age, my parents instilled a love of all things wild.  I have a deep commitment for sustaining and conserving our environment both here in Wisconsin and globally.

What I like about Taylor County: I love the mix of woodlands and agricultural lands. It provides so many great opportunities for recreation and jobs for many residents.
