Marci Boucher, President and CEO of IndependenceFirst, recently moved here from California. Why, you ask? She loves that “last call” is at 1:30am! Marci appreciates the monthly Professional Dimensions programs as well as the Bon Appetit get togethers. She sees it as a great opportunity to try new restaurants while getting to know people on a personal level.
Marci feels that the best advice she’s been given lately has been, “don’t ever say you’re a Bears fan!” When asked about leadership traits that she admires, Marci quoted Chae Richarson, “courage is not living without fear. Courage is being scared to death and doing it anyway.” She feels that advice applies to so many situations.
Her guilty pleasure activity since coming to Milwaukee involves enjoying fresh cheese curds or Kopp’s Custard and then going for a nice hike or bike ride to burn it off. Milwaukee has so many good restaurants to choose from but when she is looking to feed the whole family dinner and have a cocktail in one, she goes to Sobelman’s for a gigantic Bloody Mary with a whole chicken in it. Only in Wisconsin!
If Marci could meeting any person, living or dead, she replied that she would like to meet the original Bernie Brewer Mascot so she could slide down into a vat of beer. The book she last read was “How to Survive a Wisconsin Winter.” When asked if she could go someplace she has never been, she said she would go to the Wisconsin State Fair to enjoy some infamous Cream Puffs. It is apparent that Marci has jumped into Wisconsin living with both feet and we are delighted to welcome her! Please introduce yourself to Marci when you see her at a Professional Dimensions activity.
