Other interests?

“I love spending time with my family and friends and taking my dog on walks at any of Kenosha’s amazing parks! I enjoy reading (fantasy, mystery/thriller, and historical fiction), listening to true crime podcasts, crafting, and watching (and attending) Packer and Bucks games. I also enjoy traveling and find it especially fun to plan trips and learn more about the culture and history of where I’ll be going.”
