What do you do?
I am a teacher in the School District of La Crosse at 7 Rivers Community High School.

Why did you get involved in La Crosse SOUP?
I LOVE the idea of a grassroots organization empowering a diverse group of local citizens to make significant positive changes in our community. SOUP gives residents a platform to share their amazing ideas, to gain some financial support to make them a reality, to build a coalition to help put it into practice, and an opportunity to remove any barriers that might otherwise discourage people from taking action.

What is your favorite place in La Crosse?
I absolutely LOVE Upper and Lower Hixon Forest. After school, and on the weekends, my family and I will be there trail running and mountain biking. These trails are such a blessing for our community!
