MONKEY OF THE MONTH: Gail is a mother who enjoys spending as much time with her family as possible. Her favorite season is autumn! She loves taking walks to see the leaves change color, watching spooky movies, and carving pumpkins. In the summer, she spends her weekends at her campground with her son, boyfriend, and family. Her favorite part of camping is sitting around a bonfire telling stories and movie nights on the big projector. As a hobby, Gail also has an interest in all sorts of dance and performance. Her biggest interest has been the Polynesian culture. She has been learning and performing Polynesian dance for 26 years. She has been lucky enough to go to Hawaii twice but would love to visit again soon! As a family, Gail loves traveling to Wisconsin Dells, visiting sites in Chicago, and road trips to visit friends and family. Gail is celebrating her 2nd year at PI (3rd if you counted she started as one of our AMAZING student interns)

MONKEY OF THE MONTH: Kristen is a wife to her high school sweetheart, John, and mother of two boys, Joshua & Jaxon. As a child Kristen vacationed with her family to Minocqua, Wisconsin. There she would spend hours fishing, and sightseeing the town with her parents. Kristen passed her love for Minocqua & fishing on to her boys. As a family they now vacation there each year, where they rent out a three cabin lodge and met up with Kristen's parents, siblings, and extended family. Kristen's family also loves short getaways to Wisconsin Dells. Their favorite place to stay is the Wilderness Resort. At home Kristen enjoys hosting family get togethers, spending time curled up in front of the fireplace with her cats and dogs, attending her sons plays, and attending events at her husbands VFW post.
