Accomplishments:
By far, my greatest accomplishments have been my marriage of 8 years to my best friend and wife, Ereka, and raising our three amazing sons, Madden, Grayson and Bowen.  Following would be graduating with honors (Cum Laude) from Upper Iowa University in 2011 with a BASc degree, majoring in Accounting, and advancing my career over the years which was made possible only by the grace of God and a few people He has placed in my life who have given me mentorship and opportunities to which I am eternally grateful.

Off the Clock:
My middle son, Grayson, is autistic so a lot of my wife and I’s free time is spent learning about what Grayson’s world looks like through his eyes and researching new ways to help him and other children with Autism learn, grow, and assimilate in the world the rest of us see.  Grayson has blessed us with a perspective on life that many of us forget about as we grow older and he continues to challenge us for the better each and every day.  When I do have free time, I enjoy vacationing with my family, hunting, fishing, woodworking, golfing, gardening, and spending time around my koi pond.

Accomplishments
I have been married to my wonderful husband for 12 years and have a son who will be turning 1 year very soon!  I earned my Bachelor’s and my Master’s degrees while working full time, which was a huge win for me.

Off the Clock
My favorite thing to do when I am not at work is spend time with my family.  I also like to go to concerts and see live bands…. anything from cover bands to big name bands.  Last year I was lucky enough to see Red Hot Chili Peppers and Metallica (husband’s pick).  This year I plan to go to Country Thunder and hopefully, several other concerts.  My family and I like to vacation in Missouri. Our extended family have land near Lake of the Ozarks so we try to plan at least one trip every year.

Accomplishments
I have my Bachelor’s in special education, but returned to school to learn accounting.  I was a teacher for nearly 15 years before joining the Mid-States team!  I also lived in Arizona for about five years and loved hiking the mountains.

Extracurricular
I’m not involved in so many of my own activities these days as much as I am in my 10-year-old son’s, but I am a regular blood donor and like to volunteer when my schedule allows.

Off the Clock
I love to travel, but don’t do so as often or as spontaneously as I did prior to having a child and my summers off!  My taste in music and movies varies greatly – two of my faves are the Wizard of Oz and Friday.

Secret Life
I’m a grammar fanatic.  My son, Jax, was on two episodes of the TV show Chicago Med last year, so I filed his tax return along with mine.

Accomplishments
I received my degree in Elementary Education from UW-Whitewater and teach 5th grade.  While working at Mid-States I have learned so much that I am excited to share with my class.

Off the Clock
Some of my favorite hobbies are taking my adorable dog, Franky, on walks, going jet skiing, and attending Brewers games.

Secret Life
Something most people wouldn’t know about me is that when I was 10, I called the cops on my sister for taking my spot on the couch (I was there first).

Accomplishments
My greatest blessing and accomplishment are my three children that I have raised.  I am so proud of the adults they are becoming.  My 2 sons have graduated from college and my daughter will be a junior in college.  This past January my daughter ran her first marathon and I ran my first half marathon in Disney World.

Off the Clock
I enjoy spending time with family and friends outdoors, running, hiking, kayaking and golfing.  I love traveling and being near the water, whether its a warm and sunny beach by the ocean or northern Wisconsin at the lake.  I like to listen to live music.  One of my favorite venues is at the Robert Mondavi winery in Napa Valley.
