What is your story? How did you end up in Milwaukee? Stephanie Pottschmidt

I just graduated from Miami University (of Ohio not Florida, I am not that cool), and did not want to move back to Columbus. I had a desire to see a new place, a new city with new people. Through networking I landed the Social Media Director gig at a start up that launched me here, a few short months after graduation.

What keeps you in Milwaukee/What do you like best about Milwaukee?

Milwaukee is filled with amazing people, unique restaurants, fun bars and awesome adventures just waiting to be found. I am currently living with my boyfriend of six years in an apartment right on the river and could not love walking out see people actively enjoying their lives on the water anymore. This is a perfect place for me to be as I begin the next chapter of my life.

Favorite spot in the city?

My favorite spot in the city is probably Bradford Beach. I love being on the lake and it is such a fun environment. Another is the Milwaukee Public Market, I love all the awesome food and the hustle and bustle of tourists and locals.

Milwaukee festival you are eager to attend each year?

Obviously, Summerfest, but I feel like Milwaukee has a new festival popping up each weekend and I’m really looking forward to exploring them all.

What drew you to Echelon?

I was initially drawn to Echelon as a way to get involved in a new city while making relationships along the way. I jumped at the opportunity to meet and work with other successful young professionals in a motivated and volunteer oriented environment. I am excited to see where this opportunity will take me.
