Director of Strategic Partnerships & Co-founder
The Social Connector
Born and raised in Milwaukee, I decided when it was time to make a decision for college I took a leap of faith and attended the University of Minnesota – Twin Cities in Minneapolis. After working in retail merchandising in Minneapolis and later Chicago, I made a difficult decision to move back to my hometown. In my professional career in Milwaukee, I transitioned from Corporate America to the Nonprofit World and I obtained a master’s from Marquette University along the way. I currently work in development for a national education nonprofit.
I truly believe Social X was “birthed” at the right time and I am so incredibly proud of the change and the social disruption we are causing for young professionals to stay, enjoy and fall in love with Mil-town. I thrive in diverse environments and to see Social X developing innovative concepts and events to crush segregation and an old-school mentality in Milwaukee – is truly remarkable and I am proud to be a part of this and one of the reasons why I chose to stay.
Milwaukee is a great town and change is coming soon here. I love this city and I love how Social X is truly changing the game for diverse professionals.
