Tell us a bit about yourself.
I’m originally from Kansas City and just moved to Milwaukee from Phoenix with my husband. We started a wrestling academy in Hartland, WI, his hometown. I decided to get my Pilates certification so I could teach and travel with him. I also work with a nutrition company called Vemma, and now I’m working with Dabble! I was hesitant at first to move to Wisconsin from warm, sunny Arizona, but I bought the warmest coat I could find, and it’s been pretty great so far!
Why did you want to get involved with Dabble?
I’ve always been a dabbler at heart. I’m always trying new hobbies, sports, food, etc. In 2010 I got my paragliding pilots license. In 2011 I decided to get my pilates certification. In 2012 I’m going to
try to get past a white belt in jun jitsu! I love salsa dancing, rock climbing, cooking and traveling. So when I heard Jess (founder of Dabble) talking on NPR about Dabble opening in Milwaukee, I was pumped. I got on the website right away and contacted Jess to see how I could get involved. I think I got a little lucky with timing, because she responded within a day!
What do you currently Dabble in?
Mostly answered above, but I also attend the local REIA to learn about wholesaling houses and land lording, go to bikram yoga, and try to attend a few Meetups in Milwaukee.
What would you like to Dabble in?
I would like to learn how to make my own goat cheese, raise chickens and become an expert organic gardener. I would love to have some land one day and live mostly from what I grow and raise. I’ve already set up classes on cheese making, gardening and chicken raising, so Dabble is making it happen for me!
What’s your favorite thing about Milwaukee?
It has the kind midwestern people, but a lot of the arts and culture you would find in big cities and coasts. There is also a lot of great ethnic food, surprisingly!
