My father took a job here in Milwaukee in 2002. What I thought was a terrible situation ended up being a tremendous blessing. After high school I stuck around for college and decided to make this great city my home.
I love the culture of Milwaukee. Midwestern values and tradition are very similar to the south. I've made some of the best friends I've ever had here in this city and would love to raise a family here.
I love spots like Bavette, a great butcher shop and restaurant in the Third Ward - an unassuming place that's comprised of individuals that love their trade. The employees of Bavette take pride in what they do and the product they deliver. It's admirable, very Milwaukee.
Summerfest! I love the energy that comes to this city every year during that festival.
An opportunity to work hand-in-hand with the best this city has to offer in young professionals.
My first meeting with Echelon. It was a Saturday morning (early) at an East Point coffee house. The passion that everyone shared for innovative and out of the box events was so refreshing. Seeing people who work tirelessly throughout the week come together on a day off in the name of community service made me excited about Echelon's potential.
I moved here from a city full of diversity. I hate that we are identified as "The Most Segregated City in the Country.” I'd love to see more interaction between communities. Groups like Echelon have the potential to spark that change. It's not easy nor is it quick; however, it's necessary.
