Other & Personal:
As a native of Clark County, Wisconsin, Lisa grew up in the Town of Loyal on a dairy farm with her older sister and three younger, but taller, brothers.  Lisa is married to the dude she followed from Wisconsin to Utah to Indiana back to Wisconsin.  They have two teenage daughters who believe their parents are now quite clueless. My guess is that Lisa and her husband will become quite brilliant in about 5 years.
 
Lisa can drive any type of forklift, but cannot drive a stick shift. (Note that the tractors Lisa grew up driving did not care what gear you started them in.)  Besides dragging percussion instruments out on the football field for her daughters' marching band field shows, Lisa also helps with stage crew, scenery and props for the Optimist plays.  She loves to paint (things, not pictures) and reads voraciously.  She loves problem solving and does logic puzzles for fun.
 
As a town clerk, Lisa became an expert in road construction and extended her skills to pulling tires out of ditches and crawling into culverts.  The favorite part of Lisa's job is elections.  She loves the planning, the training, and the organizing leading up to the big event.
 
County Information:
Rock County is named after...you guessed it, a ROCK.  A special rock along the Rock River, which was used as a gathering place by Native Americans.  Rock County is split north to south by the Rock River, creating plenty of opportunities for fishing and water recreation.
 
Visitors can enjoy the many parks, trails, and historical locations including Beckman Mill, Lincoln-Tallman House and the Milton House, which was part of the Underground Railroad.  Other things not to miss are the farmers markets, Rotary Botanical Gardens, Freedom Fest, Rock River Thresheree and the 4-H Fair.  Rock County is the home of Beloit Snapper Minor League Baseball, Rock Aqua Jays, Rock County Rage Amateur Football, and Janesville Jets Hockey.  Other entertainment can be found at the Armory, Performing Arts Centers and community festivals throughout the year.
 
Rock County is the "Gateway to Wisconsin" with I90/39 beginning at the Illinois border leading commercial and tourism traffic into the state.  Rock County's economy includes many commercial, industrial and agricultural enterprises supported by some of the richest soils in the state.
