Gretchen grew up north of the border and is a graduate of University of Wisconsin-Parkside. She worked in the newspaper business for years before switching gears and tutoring children in Kenosha schools. When her first son was born, Gretchen transitioned into stay-at-home mom and continued to do so while two more brothers joined the family.
Gretchen got to know the PI family while one of her sons attended speech therapy. She really loves using her creative side to help with social media and helping the awesome office staff at PI with various tasks that keep everything running smoothly.
In her spare time, she loves going on local adventures with her husband and three boys, including an almost daily walk in a nearby forest preserve. She and her family also enjoy watching and attending Cubs games, the kids’ baseball games, traveling to beaches and wooded areas, and hanging out with some of their nearly 100 relatives.
