How long have you been a volunteer with MMoCA?

5 years

What was your first volunteer role with MMoCA?

Art Fair on the Square

What was the most fun volunteer role or most unusual volunteer role/task?

I really enjoy managing the cash register at the Art Fair.  It's a great opportunity to work together with other volunteers and see many friends from the community.

What has been an unexpected benefit to volunteering?

The main benefit in volunteering for MMoCA is that it is a ton of fun!  We spend a lot of time supporting and building awareness for MMoCA, however, the activities and the people we interact with really make it an enjoyable and rewarding experience.

Favorite/Inspirational place in Dane County?

I'm a passionate road biker, so the roads of western Dane County hold a very special place in my heart.  The many hills provide a great opportunity to build your fitness, however the suffering is rewarded with beautiful vistas when you make it to the top and look out to our amazing country side.  It's also always interesting to see the changes in nature throughout the biking season.
