Germantown Area Chamber of Commerce,Executive Director
I started at the Germantown Area Chamber of Commerce in October 2000 as a part time administrative assistant (after having the privilege of being a stay-at-home mom for 8 years). I held that position until November 1, 2005, when I became the Executive Director.
My prior work experience was in banking. I started with Heritage Bank in West Bend in 1976. M&I Bank bought Heritage Bank in the mid-1980's and I continued working as a Consumer Loan Officer until 1992.
I am and have been a Germantown resident since 1993 moving from West Bend where I was born and raised.

I am a 12 year veteran on the broker side and a 20 year veteran in property management.

Last year (2021), I was apart of 35 successful closed transactions, with a total volume of $8.9 million. Overall career sales, over $25 million.
I come with a team of administrators, transaction coordination, inspectors, contractors, lenders and bankers that all support the process.
Jake was raised in Erin, WI right next to Holy Hill. He married his high school sweetheart, Julie, in 2013. Today they live in Richfield, WI with their son, Sawyer and dog Jack. They enjoy traveling, camping, hiking, golfing, fishing, and anything outdoors.
Professionally Jake and Julie stay incredibly busy but also feel it's extremely important to have plenty of family time and create that optimal work/life balance.

They both are extremely passionate about creating a legacy and making a positive impact on the world. Entrepreneurism has allowed them to create their ideal balance between family time, helping clients, and volunteering/giving back to the communities. They have extremely high expectations of themselves and continue to support charities they feel passionate about.
