Paula’s Personal Story

I grew up in Freedom WI with a supportive family.  My family is very small with my parents, a sister, two aunts, one uncle, and four cousins who all live in the surrounding area.  I grew up in a rural area and spent most of my early years hiking around the woods.  My friends weren’t too far away; I could bike a mile or so to meet up with them.  I attended Freedom High School then went to UW Fox Valley where I received my Associate Degree in Arts and Science.  I then attained a Bachelor of Business Administration, with a Finance major from UW Oshkosh.

When I am not working, I spend my time with my family.  My son Mason is 5 and my daughter Brynn is 3.  They keep our house full of chaos and energy along with our two dogs, Peyton our Vizsla, and Branch the Plot Hound.  There never seems to be a dull moment, and when there is, it is cherished.  My husband, who is an amazing support, and I have been married 5 wonderful years.  He works at Pierce Manufacturing and volunteers for the Town of VandenBroek’s First Responders and Fire Department.

Katy’s Personal Story

I was born in Port Huron, Michigan but moved to Albuquerque, New Mexico when I was 10 years old.  I come from a very large family, most of which still live in Michigan. There were 18 children born to my Dad’s family and I am the third of six children.

My husband Scott and I have been happily married for over 30 years. We have lived in New Mexico, Illinois and finally settled in Wisconsin, where we have been raising our two sons, Nicholas, 17 years old and Ethan, 14 years old.

We also have a furry family member, Franklin, who is a very active two-year-old Aussie doodle. He is always involved in everything we’re doing. We love walking and spending time with him.

In my free time, I enjoy watching my son’s perform in band and support them in their extra-curricular activities. We love to travel and enjoy trying different kinds of food from the places we visit. We spend a lot of time with family and friends and treasure our time with them.
