A place filled with Art, community and natural resources. 


It has taken me a long time to understand what a special city Baraboo is, partly because I have been cautious in getting to know Baraboo. I had no plans to make it my permanent home but I'M GLAD that it is and I have had the pleasure of meeting some very amazing and talented people. Meeting them has made my love and committment grow to do what I can to contribute.


In the end, I have my husband to thank (yes he will be shocked when he reads this) for selecting this city as our permanent home. He chose Baraboo before I moved here from NYC and I trusted that he would choose well. He was proud that he had chosen a city with a taxi service (one of my requirements). Little did he know that it had a wonderful art community. It took me 10 years to find this out and come out of my cocoon. I'm in, and I have a feeling that my heart would be a little broken If we had to move.


A few of the things that I love about Baraboo:

Baraboo is also the home of a very active downtown featuring great restaurants, shops, bookstores and a beautiful courthouse square lawn.


Baraboo has been winning my heart since our daughter was born 6 years ago.


Thank you to all that have done their part to make my stay here enjoyable.
