After a decade of parenting children, cats, dogs, and the occasional amphibian, Colleen returned to the world of work at the Wisconsin Historical Society Press. After four years surrounded by books, she began searching for a way in which to help others more directly. Colleen is thrilled to be a navigator with Covering Wisconsin. Colleen grew up in New York and received her bachelor's degree in English from the University of Wisconsin-Madison. She lives with her husband, daughter, and three naughty but well-intentioned dogs.
