I grew up in Eagle Lake Terrace and for the last 10 years or so, I’ve lived on the East Shore with my husband, Brian, and three of our children. As the 6th generation of my family to live here, I feel a strong sense of stewardship to maintain the quality of life, preserving land and water. My favorite things about living on Eagle Lake include sunsets coloring the water and sky, watching storms roll across the lake from the west, and being out on the water or ice with family and friends, or just myself. In addition to being an ELIA board member, I’m a commissioner for the Eagle Lake Sewer Utility District, a Kan-Do 4-H leader, a St. Mary-Dover parishioner and active at Catholic Central High School. For work, I’m a tour guide for Milwaukee Food & City Tours, and the Special Events & Public Relations Director for the Geneva Theater, Lake Geneva, and Plaza Theater, Burlington.
I like that ELIA works to solve lake ecosystem problems at their sources, plus, I support the focus on building camaraderie and a sense of community around the lake. I think people should join ELIA to learn about the steps they can take to improve the watershed and therefore the lake, plus it’s a good way to meet the many wonderful, interesting people who chose to invest in the community.
