“Well, my daughter was probably my biggest influence.  She has been doing competitive cheer since she was four years old, and I really wanted her to have a program to come up into when she got to Wausau East so that she could just be a cheerleader and continue on that path. Then one of the other biggest influences was the lack of student support that I feel our athletes have. I really felt like we needed somebody there all the time cheering for all of our athletes.  I remember in my high school days, and as far back as I could remember, that there were always cheerleaders there. They were getting people pumped up and ready to play whatever sport we were cheering for, and it just help set the mood. So, I think that was a big influence: that when I came here, I didn’t see cheerleaders and there wasn’t a lot of student support. So I really wanted to, in time, make a difference.”
