Some Personal information.

I have been Married to Michael Westcott for 44 years we have 2 adult daughters. I am active in the Central WI Beekeepers assoc., The Wausau Area Empty Bowls project which raised $45,000 for a local food pantry in 2017. Habitat for Humanity Re-store salvage and deconstruction I seek out buildings/properties that are going to be demolished and negotiate with the owners to have Habitat come in to salvage items that we can sell in our Re-Store. We have made over $100.000.00 for Habitat Wausau from items that normally would have gone into landfills. I sit on the Board of Elders for my church and also enjoy gardening and landscaping our yard.
