Once in a Lifetime

... “once in a lifetime” seems to fit when it comes to pop-up dinners... and sometimes, if you’re lucky - LOVE. Chef Ana is combining the two for a Valentines Evening event at Relic’s Vintage Warehouse.

Day of Action 2018


       My interactive sign in the crowd- captured by photo journalist
       Lee Matz.

Woman's 2nd Anniversary DOA- Jan. 20, 2018 in Milwaukee - the weekend ALL over the country women, men, kids, LGBTQ, and dogs marched in a peaceful demonstration. 

My interactive sign was inspired by the WW comics and 80s BIG hair.

I think this perfectly sums up why there is another women's March this Saturday. " The new women's movement focuses whole-heartedly on women (and families) of color (WOC). Growing up in Milwaukee, one of the most segregated cities in the country, and one of the poorest as well, I have witnessed the inequality over and over again in my lifetime. The Women's March is addressing many issues besides discrimination, ie: sexual harassment, equal pay, LGBTQ issues, inequality in education. Perhaps you and your families have been fortunate enough not to have experienced the disparities. IF that is the case, all the more reason I invite both of you to join your sisters in the movement, the March, and the continuing action that we are participating in together!" 

Written by my friend Jean Wells, in a response to 2 women who think we as women have reached equality.

Elsa - Lil One in a BIG Yard

Elsa and her parents. This lil one had trouble hearing but sure was a sweetie to photograph. Also, her parents were funny and great storytellers, and full of talent. Darla was an opera singer, Mike was in theater, is a great cook, and a fire fighter.

Puppy dog, Astro ( German Shepherd)  and his humans. Geez, what a fun & playful photo shoot that was! Fun fact: Astro was 5 months and 50 pounds at the time of this shoot. He's still growing into his paws. :)  Those eyes, tho!

Gothic Milwaukee

This lady and friend, Anna Lardinios, is a multi-talented story teller ( Gothic Milwaukee) that takes you around the city on foot. In the fall she puts on a entertaining ghost tour. In December she does a Holiday lights tour. She's full of energy and good laughs, and of course good stories. That's not all, she also has two self guided tours (they make great gifts!) of Downtown Milwaukee & Wauwatosa. Good fun for all.

But wait, there's more! Anna's also an author and needed a current head shot for the book, due out in 2018. Eeeeeeeeeeek! So happy for her!

Where Do You Want to Go?

So Proud of my friend Mary Beth. She's got a ton of energy, big heart, playful side, and a warmth about her you can't deny. 

"My approach to helping you achieve your real estate vision is based on understanding, advocacy and creativity... and you!

I’m a mother to three wonderful children who are now grown and pursuing their own life adventures. Professionally, I’ve spent the past 25 years working as an advocate with individuals and families in the disability community. My previous work as a case manager in Southeastern Wisconsin has taught me how to represent clients and get results. These invaluable work experiences have honed my ability to develop personal trust and understanding, strong relationships, and resourceful partnerships. This advocacy role has also helped me develop a keen sense of what it takes to cut through red tape and “get the job done.”
I’m also a visual artist and work in a variety of mediums but my favorite is metal work and welding. In all, I believe creativity, hard work and perseverance have given me a strong foundation – and edge – in all areas of my life... and my clients’ lives.
I’m excited about the opportunity to get to know you and learn about your wants and needs. With analytical and creative thinking, we’ll develop a plan that focuses on YOU and securing YOUR real estate goals – even if those objectives change over time. I look forward to making the process simple, customized, results-oriented… and fun!
Where do you want to go? Let’s take you there!
