I moved here for a job with The Salvation Army.
Milwaukee is a beautiful city in the summer...the lakefront, the festivals, the people, the energy.
The event I look forward to attending each summer is Echelon's Dinner in the Alley!
I met with Meredith Counce from the first Echelon chapter in Dallas. We hoped to be able to replicate the group in Milwaukee. After meeting with Ian Abston and Matt Walker prior to the forming of Echelon, it was clear that this group needed to happen! Their energy and commitment to making Milwaukee a better city for EVERYONE was motivation for us to gather a group of the best and brightest young professionals and start the Echelon MKE chapter!
I have to say, the events where we get to have face to face experience helping the clients of The Salvation Army are the ones that touch my heart. For example, the Meaningful Makeover event makes me cry every time I think about the impact we had on people's lives.
Milwaukee needs to celebrate the beautiful diversity of the city. We need to work toward equality.
