Ellen About Us Photo

Originally from Appleton, I’ve enjoyed exploring this area of Wisconsin with my family! Once I became a mom, I searched for ways to keep busy and active, and use Wisconsin Busy Kids as a go-to resource for events, ideas and new places to visit. I stay at home with my four year old twins (Collin and Kate), while their big brother is at school (Joel, age eight). Previous to staying at home, my career was spent in Human Resources and IT. I enjoy being outdoors, having coffee first thing in the morning, and crafting. This area has much to offer, from festivals to parks to story time, and I enjoy the small community feel.

Back to the midwest I’ve come! I grew up in a small town in Indiana, then moved to Dallas for a while. When I became a mother to 2 boys in 2 years, we longed to be closer to family. Grafton has been a great start to our new life here with our boys Dane (2) and Duke (1). I was a teacher before moving north, and love to get my guys out, providing them rich and educational opportunities! Wisconsin Busy Kids has been my “go-to” for finding resources and family fun in our new hometown!
