Now, let’s meet the team!
In 2013, Calie Herbst, a former teacher with three little ones, saw a need for a “One Stop Shop” for family fun in Milwaukee. So she founded Milwaukee With Kids. Her goal was to find the best this city has to offer families and share it with other parents. In one place.
Today, Calie and her team take the work out of finding fun for kids & families around Milwaukee. They connect active parents and caregivers to the city’s best kid-friendly businesses, activities and events.
Milwaukee With Kids partners with businesses big and small to help spread the word about them far and wide. Calie is available for hosting, moderating and media appearances.
Liz lives in Menomonee Falls with her husband and three kids. After growing up in the Washington, D.C. area, she moved to Wisconsin after finishing college to be close to family. In addition to finding fun and memorable events as an Editor for Milwaukee With Kids, she is busy helping parents of young children as a parent coach to help build their parenting toolbox, confidence, and overall parenthood enjoyment.
Nicki couldn’t be more excited about being an editor for Milwaukee With Kids! A native Milwaukeean, Nicki and her family love exploring and supporting local businesses and events in and around her home stomping grounds of the Washington Heights neighborhood. She loves frequenting the farmers markets, playgrounds and parks around the city with her husband and two littles. Also a Master Gardener, you can find her volunteering at the State Fair garden or exploring the gardens at the Milwaukee Zoo, the Lakefront and in the various Milwaukee County Parks.
