Before joining the Supreme Court, Justice Ziegler served as a Washington County Circuit Court judge. She was appointed to the bench in 1997, elected in 1998, and reelected in 2004. She was the first female jurist in Washington County.  As a circuit court judge, she was the deputy chief judge for the Third Judicial District and served six years as the presiding judge of Washington County.  In 1999, Justice Ziegler sat as a Court of Appeals judge in the District II Court of Appeals Judicial Exchange Program. 

Justice Ziegler is Chair of the Judicial Education Committee and is Court Liaison to the Board of Bar Examiners. She is a commissioner on the Commission on Uniform State Laws. Justice Ziegler also currently serves on the Marquette University Law School Advisory Board and is a member of the Wisconsin Judicial Council and the State Bar of Wisconsin Bench and Bar Committee.

Yollande Deacon

 Yollande Deacon's Journey from the farmland of Cameroon to Corporate America: Trials, tribulations, triumphs!

 

Yollande Tchouapi Deacon is a native of Bantu from the Bamileke tribe of Cameroon in West Africa. She is a wife and mother. She is also a self-described dreamer, idealist and food lover, whose life and work is fueled by the cuisine of her ancestors. Cookbook author, public speaker, Yollande was inducted in 2016 as the Queen Mother of her tribe in Cameroon where she rules matters of land, family and government. She is Milwaukee Business Journal Top 40 influential leaders class of 2017.

 

 

 

Yollande was raised in a family of restaurateurs in a community where meals were not only a source for nourishment, but a means for bonding and social activity. And her upbringing instilled an enduring appreciation for community, a desire to care for others, and a strong sense of cultural identity and pride.

 

 

 

Yollande’s journey to Milwaukee began at Marquette University, where she completed her master’s degree in business. Once in the Cream City, Yollande married into a Jamaican family, whose traditional roots touched and intermingled with her own. The experience fueled her ongoing desire to share an honest and authentic view of both African and Jamaican cultures with a wider audience.

 


She found her voice through two distinct brands: Afro Fusion Cuisine and her restaurant Irie Zulu. Both are rooted in African tradition with an aim to assist consumers in rediscovering the simple joys of cooking natural, flavorful and healthy meals together. The brands showcase the versatility, uniqueness, heritage, beauty and treasures of tribal Africa through the eyes of a well-traveled native African who now calls Milwaukee home.

Stacy Scherzer, Physical Therapist and Business Owner

 

“Dynamic Workstation Wellness. How to move more while still getting your work done!”

 

Stacy Scherzer is a physical therapist with her own local business, specializing in working with clients in one on one sessions, group classes, or corporate wellness, using different movement modalities and hands on care. Goals may be reducing pain, or improving mobility, function and overall wellness through Natural Movement Solutions. She is able to bring workshops or group classes to your group, either at your place of business or a fitness/wellness facility in the West Bend or greater metro Milwaukee area. Stacy is beginning to work with corporate wellness programs, helping employees begin using "Dynamic Workstations" in their office- using strategies to move more, move better and gain greater body awareness throughout the work day, which can improve both productivity and health/wellness goals. Much time is spent addressing and stripping away old habits, sometimes addressing chronic pain concerns, and then learning new motor programs to restore balance in the body/mind. Stacy believes in changing our focus and lifestyles away from the current paradigm of mostly sedentary behavior with short intense bouts of exercise. Instead, emphasizing mindful, frequent lower intensity bouts of “movement nutrition” all day long can help optimize cellular health throughout the body.
