My wife and I are both from Negaunee and we have lived in the U.P. for most of our lives. When we moved to Marquette a few years ago I wanted to get more involved with community events by participating, volunteering, or just showing up to check things out. Connect Marquette provided the perfect opportunity for that!
I enjoy being a member of Connect Marquette because it provides the opportunity to meet interesting people and participate in a variety of fun events, including some family friendly events. My daughter learned how to ski at the Blueberry Ridge cross country ski event last year and we are so thankful to have started a lifelong family activity because of it!
Interim Executive Director |Superior Child Advocacy Center
Legal Secretary | Marquette County Prosecutors Office
I’m a member because the Advocacy Center is incredibly important to me, and being a part of Connect Marquette allows for greater visibility in Marquette County. Positive change takes place through action, and this organization is overflowing with people who are willing to take action to make changes for the betterment. Part of my objective at the Advocacy Center is to inform the community at large how critical this Center is to the safety and protection of our community’s children. I’m cognizant that I need to reach outside of my own little bubble to help other organizations in this community thrive; it’s hard to know what places need or want help or exposure. However, with being wrapped up in the needs of my own projects this organization helps provide exposure to other causes.
Marquette has always been a community that takes care of its own, and I’m very proud to be a part of that. I’m excited to take this opportunity in my capacity as a community liaison for the Prosecutor’s Office. Specifically, community outreach and communication is important and celebrating victories and realizing efforts is important to me. I’m more than happy to raise awareness and discuss how we can provide a solution for issues that impact us.
I’m new and Connect Marquette provides me with opportunities for growth, both personal and professional. There is no better group of people to be connected with than the people here. As the old adage says: many hands make light work!

PhD Student Walden University
I am originally from East Los Angeles and have a strong desire to further build a socially and economically stronger community for the next generation. I joined Connect Marquette two years ago because as a post graduate student I learned the high value of community engagement and partnership.
I have found that the relationships and activities I have been able to participate in through Connect Marquette have continued to benefit me personally as a single mother, a student, and now socially. I learn new skills in relation to investing in the relationships of citizens and people in leadership positions. The organization help integrate unique ideas and a positive energy that everyone brings to the community.
With Connect Marquette I hope to be able to learn more about what is important for the community to be addressed, what services are needed and what I can do to help give back to my community.
