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

I am from a Rickman, TN, attended The University of Tennessee and received my first job offer from Kohl’s Corporate Office.

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

I love the energy of the city and the environment. There is always something to do and the people are always kind and willing to lend a hand.

Favorite spot in the city?

My favorite part is Lakefront. It is so beautiful and relaxing.

Milwaukee festival you are eager to attend each year?

Italian Fest! Carbs… need I say more?

What drew you to Echelon?

When I moved to Milwaukee I was looking for something to get involved in. Coming right out of college I was always busy and involved in so many things. Once I moved here things died down and I needed more. I met some amazing people in Milwaukee who introduced me to this wonderful organization and The Salvation Army.

What struggles do you see our city dealing with? What can our generation do to help?

I see the city struggling with coming together as one community. That is what is so amazing about Echelon & The Salvation Army; it brings people together for one common goal. Our generation can have a voice. We can show compassion to others, lend a hand when needed, and truly give to those in need. We are a generation built on innovation and ideas, we should be striving every day to find ways to help people and get them back on their feet.
